    We offer therapy for oncology patients, including radiofrequency ablation, which uses heat to destroy tumors and can be applied to lesions of the liver, lung and kidney.

    Other therapies include trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE), which uses drug-eluting beads to deliver high concentrations of chemotherapeutic drug directly to the tumor.

    Our Expanded Services

    Over the past few years, the department of radiology at The Miriam Hospital has made significant investments in expanding in- and outpatient vascular and interventional radiology services by adding several attending physicians, acquiring new equipment and technology, and offering more minimally invasive image guided procedures.

    For oncology patients, expanded services include image guided percutaneous radiofrequency and microwave ablation procedures for the treatment of tumors. State-of-the-art catheter-based procedures for the treatment of tumors, including selective internal radiation therapy and transarterial chemoembolization, are also available.

    “We’ve also expanded the services we offer to women, including uterine artery embolization to treat symptomatic fibroid disease. And, of course, we continue to provide endovascular treatments for peripheral arterial disease and stroke,” says Bryan Jay, MD, director of vascular and interventional radiology at The Miriam.

    The department recently acquired, through a grant from The Miriam Hospital’s Women’s Association, the Penumbra device for the minimally invasive treatment of stroke. Interventional radiologists at The Miriam are also experts and leaders in the endovascular treatment of deep vein thrombosis, and The Miriam is one of only two hospitals in the state to participate in the ATTRACT trial for the treatment of iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis.

    Jay says, “Our main expansion has really been the addition of staff so that we can continue to grow and deliver the highest levels of care to our patients and minimally invasive procedures, which are not only safer and better for the patient, but also help to minimize their hospital stays.”
