- Our Interventional Radiology service includes a dedicated full-service IR team that performs state of the art vascular imaging using ultrasound, CT and MRI. The MR angiography service performs ultra low dose contrast enhanced angiography, whole body MR angiography and MR venography using a blood-pool contrast agent; the only MR vascular service in British Columbia to use these techniques, and one of only several in Canada.
- We perform a full range of procedures, including vascular and body intervention, in conjunction with our thoracic and abdominal radiologists to provide bodypart-specific interventional procedures, and our neuroradiology team performs neurointerventional radiologic procedures, including diagnostic neuroangiography, stroke and brain vascular malformation intervention.
- We provide both chemoembolization and radioembolization of tumours, with a specific focus on liver tumours, and also perform ablative procedures using microwave, RF and cryoablation for other solid organ malignancies.
- Pain management procedures are also a specialty of our team, with peripheral nerve blocks, cementoplasty/kyphoplasty, and spine intervention, including root blocks, epidural injections, facet injections, and more.
