Interventional Radiology

  • Printer Friendly Version

Interventional Radiology (IR) is a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed with imaging guidance. The images provide roadmaps that assist the interventional radiologists as they guide instruments through the body to reach diseased areas. Here in the CalvertHealth System, we have two interventional radiologists who perform procedures that can often be used to avoid hospitalization and/or surgery.

Common Procedures may include:

  • Angiography
  • Kyphoplasty 
  • Vertoplasty
  • Implanted Ports, Tunneled/ Non-Tunneled Central Lines, and PICC Lines
  • Nephrostomy Tubes
  • Dialysis Catheters
  • Uterine Fibroid Embolizations
  • Drainages
  • Biopsies
  • Blood Clot Filters
  • Foreign Body Extraction
  • Thrombolytics
  • Radiologically Implanted Tubes
After receiving an order from your doctor or medical provider for a procedure, please call the PASC centralized scheduler at 410-414-2778 extension 5084 between the hours of 8 am - 4 pm, Mon-Fri.

Our schedulers and nursing staff will contact you for the details of your procedure to include your procedure's date and time, preoperative instructions, a brief explanation of the procedure, and post procedure expectations. Our nursing staff can be contacted directly at 410-535-8321.
