Led by Robert Lookstein, MD, the Division of Interventional Radiology at Mount Sinai is the growing subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance. Advanced imaging technology provides high-resolution pictures, so interventional radiologists (board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments) can navigate tiny instruments such as catheters (small tubes) through blood vessels to reach certain parts of the body to treat various conditions non-surgically, including various cancers and liver disease. The Division is recognized as one of the top divisions in the country for image-guided procedures for a broad array of conditions and is also considered a leading training site in the field of image-guided therapy.
