Pediatric Interventional Radiology

Featured Image

Akron Children's offers the only interventional radiology program dedicated to infants, children and teens in northeast Ohio. With interventional radiology, we can sometimes eliminate the need for your child to undergo traditional surgery, thereby reducing risk, pain, scarring and recovery time.

Our pediatric interventional radiologist diagnoses and treats diseases and injuries using different types of imaging machines, such as ultrasound, fluoroscopy and CT. These images are used to guide tiny instruments through the body to conduct a variety of minimally invasive procedures, including:

  • Placement of feeding tubes, drainage tubes and central venous catheters
  • Biopsies that previously would have required open surgery
  • X-ray of the hip, shoulder, elbow and wrist joints
  • Joint injections for the treatment of juvenile arthritis or sports injuries
  • Using sclerotherapy, embolization or lasers to treat certain types of vascular malformations, particularly those that don’t respond well to surgery

Our dedicated interventional radiology suite also features an angiography unit to examine blood vessels in even the tiniest patients, as well as a cone-beam CT scanner for the most precise image-guided procedures.

Our goal is to provide the best image-guided treatment option for your child, while exposing them to the smallest amount of radiation necessary. We are trained in meeting the special medical and behavioral needs of children, and take every precaution to make sure your child is safe.
