Interventional Oncology

Interventional oncology is the treatment of cancer and cancer-related problems using minimally invasive, targeted treatments performed under imaging guidance. These procedures are performed by board-certified physicians specializing in interventional radiology.

Interventional radiology services include:

  • Cancer diagnosis using imaging-guided biopsy techniques

  • Cancer treatment using locally targeted treatments to a variety of organ systems. This includes advanced tumor ablation, radiofrequency ablation, alcohol ablation, as well as chemoembolization

  • Palliative care, including drainage tubes, feeding gastrostomy tubes and venous access

John Stoddard Cancer Center works in partnership with the Interventional Oncologists at Iowa Radiology.
