Stephen Solomon, Chief of the Interventional Radiology Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering, discusses the wide range of image-guided therapies we offer patients. At our state-of-the-art Center for Image Guided Intervention, our specialists use interventional radiology techniques to perform minimally invasive biopsies; deliver localized doses of radiation or chemotherapy; eliminate tumors, including bone metastases, using heat, cold, or electric fields; provide venous access for the delivery of chemotherapy; and offer a variety of palliative procedures to alleviate painful symptoms for patients with advanced disease.
