Interventional Radiology

Cutting-edge treatments for cancer

Imagine treating your cancer with an incision the size of your fingertip. Interventional radiology, an innovative cancer treatment, is available at the AIS Cancer Center, right here in Bakersfield.

Cancers nestled deep within your body are hard to reach without big incisions and long surgeries. Interventional radiology gives your oncologist a new treatment option. It marries the use of radiographic images, like X-rays or CT scans, with traditional cancer therapies. Interventional radiology allows your doctor to deliver effective cancer treatments without subjecting you to a major surgery.

Your interventional radiologist might use these procedures to:

  • Shrink or destroy cancer tumors
  • Treat tumors in delicate organs, such as the lungs, liver and kidneys

An interventional radiologist can also help with complications caused by major cancer surgery.
