The Interventional Radiology lab features state-of-the-art equipment and is staffed with the technical expertise of interventional radiologists and technologists to perform, assist, evaluate, train and teach a wide range of both intravascular and percutaneous image guided procedures including, but not limited to:
- Electrophysiology mapping
- Medical device placement
The interventional radiology lab is physically connected to a 1.5T MRI with high intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) capabilities, and both areas are BioSafety Level 2 (BSL- 2). Combined with an additional dedicated modern ultrasound system, the facility offers a unique opportunity to perform a broad array of multi-modality imaging and image guided intervention during a single experiment.
Non-invasive imaging offered at the lab includes:
- Fluoroscopy (live x-ray)
- C-arm cone beam CT
