Interventional Radiology uses imaging to perform a variety of minimally invasive procedures. With interventional radiology, patients have the least amount of procedural risk and pain and the fastest recovery times. Most procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis with same-day discharge.

What to expect with your IR procedure

  • After registering, you will be asked to complete a medical history form and insurance paperwork. Don't forget to bring your child's insurance card.
  • When your child’s name is called, your child will be guided to the Interventional Radiology suite, where you can hug your child before being directed to the waiting area.
  • Our nurses and technologists help your child get ready for the procedure. At this time, your child may watch TV, listen to music or other activities until the procedure starts.
  • Following the procedure, you will reunite with your child in the recovery area.
