Interventional oncology involves the detection, characterization, and therapy of cancer with minimally invasive image-guided technology. Interventional oncologists can now treat many tumors in the body without the risks of open surgery or the side effects of systemic chemotherapy and radiation. It is a subspecialty that has grown from the many advances made in interventional radiology over the last 40 years. Many of these techniques are the standard of care in the United States and worldwide. Interventional oncology is now a pillar of modern cancer care.
For many years, surgery was the only treatment available for many conditions. Today, interventional radiology treatments are first-line care for a wide variety of conditions. It is important to get a second opinion and know all of your treatment options before consenting to any procedure or surgery.
At Austin Radiological Association, highly-trained interventional oncologists perform procedures ranging from biopsy, vascular access, and palliative care to cutting-edge cancer treatment. All in addition to providing the highest standard of diagnostic imaging that ARA has provided to Central Texas for over 50 years.
