At the Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Interventional Radiology, we are internationally recognized for our expert, compassionate care to our patients. We provide the highest level of service, starting with the initial visit through follow-up and recovery.
Radiology is the medical specialty focusing on visualizing and capturing images of the body to diagnose and understand illnesses. Interventional radiology (IR) is a newer medical specialty that uses image-guided, minimally invasive procedures to visualize, diagnose and treat illnesses.
Benefits of interventional radiology: Using advanced medical imaging, interventional radiologists can diagnose and treat conditions throughout the body with minimally invasive procedures that require a very small incision (cut), meaning that there is a lower risk of complications and a shorter recovery time.
At Weill Cornell Medicine, we take a collaborative approach to your care. We focus on understanding you and your unique needs and goals and offer the support and care of a network of specialists to help you achieve the best possible health and quality of life.
