Interventional Radiology

The Medical Imaging Interventional Center offers patients an alternative to traditional surgery using interventional and neurointerventional radiology procedures which involve minimally-invasive techniques that once required surgery.

The Medical Imaging Interventional Center at Miami Valley Hospital is where interventional radiology and Neuro Interventional procedures are performed every day, around the clock.

Interventional Radiology at Miami Valley Hospital offers an alternative to traditional surgery. Interventional Radiology procedures often replace open surgical procedures, and are generally easier for the patient because they involve no large incisions, less risk, less pain, reduced length of stay, and shorter recovery times.

Interventional Oncology

Minimally-invasive procedures performed for the treatment of various cancers include:

  • Radiofrequency Ablation – An outpatient procedure used to treat tumors by heating and destroying cancer cells locally.
  • Cryoablation – An outpatient procedure that kills and destroys cancer cells by freezing them. 
  • NanoKnife – A minimally-invasive outpatient procedure used to treat inoperable tumors using localized electric currents. 
  • Y-90 Radioembolization – Treatment of various cancers within the liver using internal radiation, delivered through the arterial supply to the liver.
  • Chemoembolization – Chemotherapy directed to liver tumors via the arterial supply. 

Neuro Interventional 24:7

The Neuro Interventional program at Miami Valley Hospital is an around-the-clock, high-acuity neuro intensive care unit. Our neuro interventional specialists use minimally-invasive technologies to treat patients with vascular problems due to brain, spinal cord, head or neck disorders. Our comprehensive services are prepared for neuro emergencies related to strokes, aneurysms, and more. 

Arterial Interventions

Outpatient procedures for the treatment of arterial blockage caused by peripheral arterial disease. Patients may be suffering from leg pain while walking or foot ulcerations. Arterial stenting and balloon angioplasty are minimally-invasive procedures used to improve blood flow in patients’ arteries. 

Venous Interventions

Minimally-invasive procedures performed to treat venous disease:

  • IVC filter placement and removal – A filter is placed in the inferior vena cava to prevent blood clots from moving from the legs to the lungs. 
  • Treatment of leg vein blood clots – Done with clot-removing medications and devices.
  • Treatment of lower extremity vein reflux – Chronic venous insufficiency of the legs can cause chronic swelling, discoloration, and ultimately ulcerations. Venous closure techniques are performed to prevent reflux of blood through the abnormal leg veins.


An outpatient image-guided, minimally-invasive procedure used to treat severe back pain from vertebral body compression fractures.

Dialysis Access

  • Dialysis Catheters – Placement of dialysis catheters for patients who have kidney failure and require hemodialysis. 
  • Fistulogram and intervention – Evaluation and treatment for problematic arteriovenous fistulas or grafts.

Additional Procedures

  • Venous Access – Placement of PICC lines, central lines and central venous ports.
  • Enteric Access – For patients who are unable to eat, tubes can be placed within the bowel for feeding. These procedures include gastrostomy tubes, gastrojejunostomy tubes, and jejunostomy tubes.
  • Image-Guided Tissue Biopsy – A needle biopsy or sample of tissue obtained from a mass or other abnormal condition in the body to obtain diagnosis.
  • Drainage Procedures – The removal of fluid from a body cavity using a minimally-invasive image-guided technique. These procedures include placement of drainage catheters for ascites, pleural effusions and abscesses. 
  • Urologic Procedures – Nephrostomy tubes and ureteral stents are placed for obstructed kidneys.
  • Biliary Procedures – Biliary drainage tubes and stents are placed for biliary obstruction.

Benefits of Interventional Radiology

During interventional radiology procedures, small catheters and instruments are inserted through the arteries and veins, allowing interventional radiologists to perform a variety of complex diagnostic and interventional procedures.

The benefits of interventional procedures over traditional surgery include:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less risk
  • Less pain
  • Reduced length of stay in the hospital
  • Shorter recovery times

Interventional Radiology Team

Interventional Radiologists are physicians who specialize in minimally-invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging guidance.
