Information for Physicians

We welcome provider-to-provider direct communication to improve patient care.

Vascular Interventional Radiology is a clinical subspecialty of radiology recognized by American Board of Specialties. Vascular Interventional Radiology (VIR) uses minimally invasive procedures using imaging guidance. Some procedures are done for diagnostic reasons only, while others are done for treatment purposes. Images obtained with Ultrasound, MRI, CT and/or Fluoroscopy are used for these procedures. Vascular Interventional Radiologists are board certified physicians who specialize in these minimally invasive procedures.
