Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology involves using fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, MRI, and endoscopy either singly or in combination in order to access specific targeted parts of the body in a minimally invasive manner. Widely used in human medicine, interventional radiology is just starting to be investigated as to its uses in veterinary medicine, and Long Island Veterinary Specialists is at the forefront of this new technology


The implications for pets are far ranging. Interventional radiology is less painful than traditional methods, and allows for shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times. It also offers treatment options for conditions that have high cost or poor outcomes associated with traditional surgical intervention.

Some of the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of interventional radiology include: treatment of heart diseases, delivery of drugs directly to cancerous tissues, urinary tract disorders, tracheal collapse, and many others.

The specialists at LIVS always attempt to use the least invasive methods for any treatment, and interventional radiology offers us a wide range of new options for treating your pet.
