Image-guided Therapies

.S. Only 50 percent of patients brought to the E.R. with this condition survive. Now physicians are treating and preventing ruptured aneurysms with stent grafts. Endografts are minimally invasive and offer patients fewer complications, less pain and a quicker recovery than open surgical repair.

"Radiology's Role in Gene Therapy: Image and Deliver"

  • Gene therapy is offering new hope to cancer patients. Radiologists are helping to develop new technology for imaging genes and delivering them to targeted tumors or cells and collaborating with oncologists and molecular scientists to replace defective genes and inject "suicide genes" into patients to destroy malignant cells.

    "Chemoembolization Helps Patients with Liver Cancer Live Longer"

  • Chemoembolization is a targeted therapy in which agents are injected directly into liver tumors to stop blood flow and trap the chemotherapy drugs. Patients treated with chemoembolization are living up to three years and with a better quality of life than they would after traditional treatments.

    "Image-guided Suite of the Future Brings Precision to Minimally Invasive Procedures"

  • Radiologists are using the latest scientific advances to better treat cancer patients. The image-guided "Suite of the Future" merges leading-edge technology like robotics, global positioning system (GPS) guidance, 3-D image generation and image fusion with interventional radiological procedures to offer the utmost in precision.
