"Interventional radiology may not be a household term, but it is the newest specialty for treating many life-threatening diseases, including cancer. Using cutting edge imaging technology, physicians can not only see inside the body, they can use small catheters or other devices to apply treatment directly where it can do the most good with minimal impact on surrounding healthy tissue without further compromising a patient's health."
