Interventional Radiology

At Fauquier Health, our physicians are board-certified in interventional radiology. Our interventional radiology team specializes in the use of X-rays, MRI and other imaging technology to diagnose and treat a variety of diseases and conditions through minimally-invasive techniques. During a procedure, the interventional radiologist will use the appropriate technology to help guide small instruments (catheters) through the vascular system or other pathways percutaneously (through the skin).

Such procedures result in less risk, less pain and less recovery time for the patient.

Appointments may be made by calling 540.316.5940.
