Interventional Oncology

Interventional Radiology at UnityPoint Peoria offers the full gamut of diagnostic and therapeutic Interventional Oncology procedures. We utilize cutting edge image guidance in combination with the most current minimally invasive innovations in the field to diagnose and treat cancers. 

We offer safe, effective local curative treatments, which are typically done on an outpatient basis with minimal recovery time, sparing the patient the side effects of systemic therapy and invasive surgery.

We perform a wide variety of image-guided biopsies to provide an accurate diagnosis and allow for an effective treatment plan.

Our procedures include liver-directed therapy for primary and metastatic liver cancers, including chemotherapeutic agent delivery to the tumors (Chemoembolization) or radiation of the tumors (Radioembolization).

We also offer a wide range of tumor ablative therapies including cryoablation (freezing) and microwave ablation of different cancers including kidney, lung and liver tumors.

In addition, we provide cancer patients with many palliative options for pain management and symptomatic relief including vertebral augmentation for pathologic compression fractures.

We are part of a multidisciplinary cancer team with a strong clinical practice.  Our practice is patient-oriented. We offer inpatient and outpatient clinic consultations with close post-procedural follow up and around-the-clock physician availability.
