The Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (IR) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center specializes in treating a wide range of medical conditions through the use of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures using advanced imaging such as fluoroscopy, CT, ultrasound, and MRI. These procedures often involve lower risk, less pain, and a shorter recovery time than open surgeries.
