The vascular and interventional radiology division of the department of radiology performs specialized tests to look at and treat abnormalities in blood vessels. Abnormalities are commonly treated by angioplasty (using balloon-type catheters to open up narrow vessels) or by placing metal stents in the blood vessels. Other areas of the body that are also treated include the liver, stomach and spine. All procedures are performed by board-certified radiologists with subspecialty training in this area.
