Texas Interventional Radiology Center

The Texas Interventional Radiology Center offers comprehensive interventional radiology services and is designed for patient comfort and convenience.

Our interventional radiologists provide patients minimally invasive, image-guided techniques. They use small catheters or other devices guided by X-ray, ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) imaging to diagnose and treat conditions. These procedures offer patients smaller incisions, no overnight hospital stays, and minimal pain.
