Our services include exams, imaging studies, interventional radiology, education and support. Advanced Radiology Services physicians work closely with your medical team to help determine and provide the best solution for your health care. We are available for consult regarding our findings about your case, and also participate in multi-specialty clinics, which involve a team of specialists meeting together with a patient.
When your doctor orders a radiology exam, images or pictures of your body will be produced. A radiologist will interpret these images and provide a written report for your doctor, who will discuss the results with you. Since the report will likely influence the care you receive, it is important to have an experienced, board-certified radiologist interpret your medical images. Where you have your radiology exam usually determines who interprets the images and prepares the report for your doctor. To ensure that one of our radiologists will read and interpret your medical images, ask your doctor to send you to one of the locations served by Advanced Radiology Services.

Interventional Radiology employs minimally invasive tools and techniques to treat disease. As a result, patients benefit from significantly less trauma, recovery time, and cost than conventional surgery. Our interventional radiologists use real time imaging to guide very small instruments through the body to identify and treat medical disorders. Interventional Radiology procedures are categorized as vascular and non-vascular.
Vascular techniques include angioplasty and vascular stenting, catheter angiography, catheter embolization, catheter-directed thromboloysis, chemoembolization, aortic fenestration, detachable coil embolization, transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), and uterine fibroid embolization (UFE).
Non-vascular procedures include biopsies, drainage of abscesses/cysts, feeding tube placement, vertebroplasty, radio frequency ablation of lung, liver and other tumors(RFA), diagnostic and therapeutic joint and bursa injection, calcific tendonitis of shoulder percutaneous treatment, stereotactic breast biopsy, needle biopsy of lung nodules, and magnetic resonance (MR) guided breast biopsy.
In many cases, Interventional Radiology offers hope to patients who have been told traditional surgery is not an option.
