Eisenhower Radiology Department uses state-of-the art equipment to provide Eisenhower patients with the best in diagnostic and treatment care procedures. Eisenhower's Interventional Radiology Lab (IRL) is composed of three teams that include highly-skilled physicians, nurses and radiology technicians. Through advanced technology, and with the use of image guidance, our physicians are able to provide patients with minimally invasive, targeted treatments.
Even complex procedures that would normally involve invasive surgery may often be managed in IRL. The procedure called atherectomy is an effective approach to the removal of plaque, which can open arteries and allow for improved blood flow. Doctors can seamlessly place a carotid stent with assist of angioplasty for treatment of narrowing carotid arteries, while avoiding prolonged surgery. It is effective for repairing brain aneurysms with coils that are guided and deployed using a combination of vascular catheters, wires and real-time imaging.
