Interventional Radiology, sometimes called Special Procedures, is an innovative specialty that brings together clinical and imaging-based diagnostic technology to provide patients with minimally invasive therapy. These advanced procedures have replaced a number of traditional open incision surgeries. As such, they are generally safer for patients because they involve smaller incisions, less pain and shorter recovery times.

The Vascular and Interventional Radiology Department at Kent has two state-of-the-art procedure rooms. All procedures are performed by board-certified vascular interventionalists (physicians with highly specialized training in the use of radiology-guided diagnostic studies and treatments). They are supported by experienced nurses and technologists sharing in a commitment to clinical excellence and personalized patient care.

Patients are generally referred by their primary care physician or a specialist, but self-referrals are also an option. Following the procedures, the department promptly provides reports to the referring physician. Procedures are generally performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.
