West Cancer Center’s Radiology department consists of a team of Board Certified Diagnostic and Interventional Radiologists. We perform minimally invasive procedures using image-guided technology to diagnose and treat patients non-surgically, resulting in shortened procedure and recovery time, and often, with lower risk and pain.

 

Cancer Treatments

Many image guided techniques can be used to treat cancer. Blocking off blood supply, heat, freezing, or using radiation are several of the options used to destroy the disease.

  • PVE (Portal Vein Embolization)
  • SIRT (Selective Internal radiation Therapy)
  • Tumor Ablation
  • Tumor Embolization

Pain Management

Diagnostic injections and pain procedures can help treat acute and chronic pain. They are ordered for the diagnosis and/or treatment of pain in many areas of the spine and joints (lumbar, cervical, thoracic, shoulder, hip, wrists, etc). Often times, you may recieve an MRI or CT exam in onjunction with a pain management injection. Our radiologists specialize in pain management procedures, ensuring your pain injection is both safe and accurate.

  • Joint Injections
  • Nerve Blocks
  • Kyphoplasty/Vertebroplasty

Diagnostic Radiology Services

Diagnostic Radiology (DR) uses imaging exams and procedures to diagnose patients. In any form of medical care, diagnostic radiology plays an integral part of the diagnosis of disease. It is at the core of clinical decision-making in modern medicine.

  • CT
  • Lung Screening
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
  • PET (Position Emission Tomography)
  • X-Ray
  • Ultrasound

Interventional Radiology Services

Interventional Radiology (IR) refers to a range of techniques which rely on the use of radiological image guidance (x-ray fluid, ultrasound, CT, or MRI) to precisely target therapy. Most IR treatments are minimally invasive alternatives to open and laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. Well recognizd advantages of these minimally invasive techniques include reduced risks, shorter hospital stays, lower costs, and greater comfort. The effectiveness of these treatments is often better than traditional therapies.
