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
- Radiofrequency tumor ablation
- Powerports and PICC lines
- Deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism
- 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:
- 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.
