Interventional Radiology at Staten Island University Hospital
Staten Island, New York 10305
At Staten Island University Hospital, our interventional radiology department employs the latest in imaging technology for the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
How interventional radiology works
Our highly trained physicians perform a range of minimally invasive procedures through tiny incisions that would otherwise require open surgery. Most procedures are performed under conscious sedation as opposed to general anesthesia. With interventinoal radiology, recovery time is dramatically shortened, and most procedures are done on an outpatient basis or after a short hospitalization. Using image-guided tools including fluoroscopy (real time X-rays), ultrasounds or CT scans, our physicians can perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with exact precision. Our goal is to give the highest level of safe, effective and compassionate care to all of our patients.
