Traumatic Injury Care

Serving as an important component of emergency care

Urgent, accurate radiology to assess patients and intervene quickly can mean make the difference in saving a life.

Interventional radiologists use various techniques to help care for patients who have suffered a traumatic injury.  These techniques include:

embolization to stop bleeding;

vascular access procedures to establish intravenous capabilities;

angiography to assess injuries;

tube and stent placement to maintain vessel function;

and catheter retrieval of foreign material or objects from the body.

The IR staff offers care for emergency patients as needed.
