Yale Interventional Radiology consists of a division of physicians specializing in the use of imaging modalities to guide the performance of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in numerous parts of the body. Additionally, we are closely allied with Yale Vascular Surgery in a Yale Vascular Center, especially in the evaluation and treatment of arterial and venous blockages and aneurysms, including newer methods for angioplasty, the removal of material causing arterial blockage, and stent-grafts for aneurysms.

Clinical Interests

Other clinical interests include embolization for uterine fibroids, vascular anomalies, and pelvic congestion syndrome and varicoceles; minimally invasive treatment of cancer using embolization (including chemoembolization) and local treatments such as radiofrequency ablation; the management of varicose veins; interventions in bile ducts and the urinary track; and the placement of a variety of venous access devices.

Through the Yale Vascular Malformation Center, we are a world leader in the evaluation and treatment of patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT, or Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome).

Yale Interventional Radiologists see patients at our office in the Yale Physicians’ Building on Howard Avenue and perform procedures at Yale-New Haven Hospital and at the Veterans Administration Medical Center. In addition, we are active in training residents and fellows and conduct research.
