Interventional oncology is a subspecialty of interventional radiology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and cancer-related problems.
Interventional oncology procedures provide minimally invasive, targeted treatment of cancer. Image guidance, the use of real-time imaging on an x-ray to visualize the location where a procedure will be performed or a device will be placed, is used in combination with the most current innovations available to treat cancerous tumors while minimizing possible injury to other organs in your body.
In general, these techniques are reserved for cancer patients whose tumors cannot be surgically removed or effectively treated with systemic chemotherapy, anti-cancer drugs that are injected into a vein or given orally and travel through the bloodstream to all parts of your body. These procedures are also frequently used in combination with other therapies provided by other members of your cancer team.
