gallstoneVeterinary Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology is a very specialized field, and includes diagnostic and treatment options involving CT scans, fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, and endoscopy. The procedures have the potential to provide alternatives for patients in whom conventional therapies are declined, not indicated, or associated with excessive morbidity or mortality.

Interventional Radiology is associated with:

♦ Decreased mortality rates
♦ Minimal anesthesia time
♦ Reduced hospital stays
♦ Lower costs

In addition, some techniques, such as chemoembolization of tumors or palliative stenting for malignant obstructions offer treatment options for patients with various conditions that may not be amenable to standard therapies, or when the standard-of-care treatments are associated with excessive morbidity, cost, or poor outcome.
