Interventional radiology (IR) helps us treat children without surgery.
A variety of imaging tools including ultrasound, CT scans, and moving X-rays called fluoroscopy take detailed pictures inside the body. Interventional radiologists then use small instruments to diagnose and give treatment.
This is also called image-guided therapy. We use it to treat many childhood conditions, including cancer, blood clots and problems with eating.
Kids benefit from image-guided therapy because they often spend less time in the hospital and heal more quickly.
With teams in both Delaware and Florida, we have one of the largest IR programs in the country. We see more children and have more experience than many other programs.
We work with many specialties at Nemours Children's, and every day, we see kids get better.
Our IR teams partner with more than 30 specialties to provide world-class care. See us at work.
Some of the country’s top pediatric radiologists lead the Nemours Children's team, which is dedicated to providing the most advanced pediatric interventional radiology services available.
