Interventional Radiology (IR) is a lesser-known but invaluable specialty of medicine. It was developed in the early 1970s, and is also called Vascular and Interventional Radiology (VIR) or sometimes referred to as “clinical” or “surgical radiology.”
Interventional physicians are rigorously trained medical doctors who use imaging technology such as CT, X-rays, MRI, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, or other imaging modalities to treat medical issues in every organ system of the body.
Rather than using large, surgical incisions to treat medical issues, Interventional doctors use small incisions, cutting-edge medical devices and imaging technology to perform major medical procedures. Small incisions reduce the risk of infection, scarring, hospital stays and recovery time.
Our philosophy is that patients should be informed and empowered in their medical care decisions. At CiC Salt Lake, we think the job of a physician should be to listen to patients about their health, provide the best information and treatment options available based on our knowledge and experience, and then do whatever possible to best support patient decisions.
At Comprehensive Interventional Care (CiC), we believe that collaborative teams provide better care than individuals. We work closely with our patients, referring physicians, family caregivers and our internal staff to develop a care plan that ensures the best possible outcomes.
As the landscape of medicine has evolved and new challenges have emerged, CiC continues to focus on patient-centered care. We use the most up-to-date procedures and the latest technology available, setting CiC apart as a continued leader in minimally invasive interventional care.
We have been recognized by our colleagues in the medical industry for providing the highest level of care in a non-intimidating environment and at a lower cost.
