Combining expertise with precision technology to improve care for patients

Interventional radiology is a highly specialized field that uses imaging technologies, such as ultrasound, fluoroscopy and CT scans, to guide catheters, wires and other small instruments through the body into areas targeted for treatment. This requires the precision skills of a highly trained physician. 

SLUCare interventional radiologists are fellowship-trained, board-certified specialists with the Department of Radiology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. These physicians perform a wide range of procedures, many of which replace the need for open surgery. Instead, doctors use tiny incisions — just 3-4 mm — to treat the problem, while reducing risk, pain, scarring and recovery time for patients. 

For cancer patients, we offer interventional oncology services, including innovative treatments such as Yttrium-90 and transarterial chemo-embolization (TACE). We also perform tumor ablations, pre-operative embolizations, and palliative treatments for cancer patients.

Our Team Approach Assures Patients Get the Right Care

SLUCare interventional radiologists work collaboratively in the same clinic, reviewing patient cases together to determine the best course of treatment. Our doctors also provide follow-up care after a procedure — all the while communicating with the referring physician to assure continuity of care. It's a comprehensive approach that distinguishes SLUCare from other practices, and it's the reason more doctors are referring patients to our team for care.
