Interventional Radiology (IR) specializes in using image guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures. By using ultrasound, x-rays, and CT scans we are able to diagnose and treat disorders to further direct care with less pain, less risk, and quicker recovery time than regular surgery. From central line placements, image guided biopsy, to cancer treatments, we provide the entire range of minimally invasive procedures for our pediatric patients.
IR is available at all three campuses of Texas Children’s Hospital -- Medical Center, Texas Children's Hospital West Campus and Texas Children's Hospital The Woodlands. Most procedures can be performed at any campus, however there are some procedures that require higher level of care that are only performed at the Medical Center campus.
Our pediatric interventional radiologists are all specialty trained to perform minimally invasive image guided procedures with experience in premature infants to adults. There is expertise in vascular access, vascular malformation treatments, venous recanalization, thrombolysis, interventional oncology, and every other aspect of interventional radiology. Our IR docs are available to meet with you in clinic to discuss treatment options that they can provide for your child.
