Interventional Radiology

Children’s National interventional radiologists perform a full range of minimally invasive, image-guided procedures to both diagnose and treat disease in infants, children, and adolescents. The best available quality of care is made possible by a dedicated team of interventional radiologists, radiologic technicians, registered nurses, physician assistants, clinical coordinators and anesthesiologists. We also are at the forefront of research in minimally invasive diagnostics and therapy through the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation, where we are working on enhancing local drug delivery techniques in cancer and thrombosis as well as evaluating the role of magnetic resonance (MR)- guided high intensity focused ultrasound to treat pediatric soft tissue and bone tumors.

Interventional Radiology describes a field of specialized surgery where doctors use state-of-the-art technology, such as ultrasound, X-Ray, CT, and MRI to visualize the inside of the human body. When they have a clear image of the target inside the body, experts are able to guide instruments, such as catheters, to the target area for diagnosis or treatment.
