Interventional Radiology in Fremont
Washington Hospital’s Interventional Radiology (IR) physicians offer
many options for the least invasive treatments available by providing
multimodality state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostic expertise.
IR physicians utilize innovative image guided techniques and ultramodern
technology to treat diseases in all vascular and nonvascular systems.
Today, many conditions that once required surgery can be treated less
invasively with IR procedures. IR services and the IR clinic can offer
patients the streamlined benefit of both expedited imaging evaluation
and targeted image guided treatments with more convenience, fewer complications,
minimal discomfort and less recovery time compared to surgical options.

advanced training in a broad spectrum of minimally invasive procedures.
