Interventional radiology

Minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment

The Dalhousie University Department of Diagnostic Imaging Division of Interventional and Vascular Radiology is comprised of six fellowship trained Interventional Radiologists with varying interests and skillsets.

The division has a close relationship with Vascular Surgery, Cardiology, Nephrology, Hepatobiliary Surgery, Urology, Oncology and Interventional Neuroradiology. We currently have three vascular suites, one biopsy suite, one line suite and a dedicated CT scanner at our disposal.

The divisional team, which includes an excellent group of dedicated nurses and technologists, perform a wide variety of vascular, non‐vascular and Interventional Oncology procedures, including:

  • Aortic Stent Grafts
  • Thoracic Stent Grafts
  • Trans‐arterial valve implantation (TAVI)
  • Peripheral angioplasty and stenting
  • Cardiac Catheterization
  • Adrenal Vein sampling
  • Arteriovenous malformation treatment (AVM)
  • Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)
  • Dialysis line and fistula work
  • Trans‐arterial chemo‐embolization (TACE)
  • Radiofrequency and other cancer ablations therapies (RFA)
  • Ytrium therapies

The division is a dynamic group who are always learning and improving – maintaining a nationwide presence. We are also an academic group with many research interests; but we are particularly interested in education, being a key part of the Diagnostic Imaging Residency Program and offering Fellowships for post‐graduate MDs from Canada and around the world.

We pride ourselves on providing world class education and offering safe, up‐to‐date treatment to Nova Scotians.
