Interventional Oncology

Interventional oncology is a patient-friendly approach to diagnosing and treating cancer. Jupiter Medical Center’s interventional radiologists utilize minimally invasive techniques that result in fewer hospital stays, safer procedures and faster recovery.

Interventional radiologists specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They have in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available, coupled with diagnostic and clinical expertise across all specialties. These physicians use image guidance for the nonsurgical treatment of a variety of diseases, resulting in better outcomes, less pain, and faster recovery compared to open surgery. Many conditions that once required traditional open surgery can now be treated with safer, nonsurgical procedures.

  • Interventional Oncology Treatment Options
  • Chemoembolization
  • Radiofrequency tumor ablation
  • Powerports and PICC lines
  • Deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism
  • Vertebroplasty/Kyphoplasty
  • Obstruction Relief/Fluid Drainage

Interventional Radiologists are advancing cancer detection and treatment through the use of imaging technology, frequently used in combination with the most current innovations available in the oncology field. Their goal is to precisely locate and remove tumors in a minimally or noninvasive way.

Most patients who undergo these procedures are outpatients or require an overnight stay in the hospital.

  • Procedures include:
  • Chemoembolization
  • Radioembolization
  • Obstruction relief/Fluid drainage
  • Microwave ablation
  • Percutaneous biopsies
  • Powerports and PICC line placement
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Venous access
  • Vertebroplasty/ Kyphoplasty

Jupiter Medical Center is proud to offer its patients the latest technology for interventional radiology procedures.

Interventional Oncology is an integral part of cancer treatment today. Jupiter Medical Center is pleased to offer Veran Medical Technologies Total Navigational Oncology Solution to our patients. Interventional Radiologists perform minimally invasive biopsies and targeted procedures such as ablation.

The addition of the ig4™ Platform for interventional radiology provides electromagnetic based 4D navigation technology, which incorporates a unique respiration tracking system allowing physicians to locate suspicious targets throughout a patient’s breathing pattern.

Patient PET and CT scans are combined with the system, creating a 4D view in real time, allowing physicians to “see inside” to accurately target a lesion within a moving organ such as the lungs, kidneys or liver. This technology reduces procedure time and radiation dose.
