Lankenau Medical Center in the Philadelphia suburbs now offers the most
advanced technology available to diagnose and treat complex medical
conditions without major surgery. Our dedicated Interventional Radiology
Suite houses the Philadelphia area's most sophisticated and
technologically superior imaging system, providing enhanced
diagnosis, treatment planning and therapeutic interventions. The
system's high level of quality and detailed images offer patients
safe, effective alternatives to surgery.
Interventional radiology combines the technology of powerful imaging
equipment with the skill of specially trained physicians who guide
narrow tubes or catheters and other very small instruments through blood
vessels and other pathways to the precise location of a problem. These
procedures require only a small incision, which benefits patients by
causing less pain, less risk and less surgical scarring, resulting
in a shorter recovery period than with traditional surgery. Most
procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.
