Gastrointestinal Cancer Treatments
(Also see Cancer / Treatments / Interventional Radiology)
Some patients whose gastrointestinal cancer diagnosis would indicate surgery as a treatment are not surgical candidates due to frailty, advanced age or other health concerns. Interventional radiology (IR) procedures are minimally-invasive options for cancer treatment.
Radiofrequency ablation, a localized and targeted therapy, uses radiofrequency energy heat to destroy tumors by heating them from within.
Chemoembolization and radioembolization enable transarterial delivery of cancer medications or highly-effective radiotherapy directly to metastatic disease in the liver.
Our interventional radiologists are highly trained physicians who use X-ray, ultrasound, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and CT (computed tomography) imaging to safely guide their work.
