Angiography in children
Angiography in children is different than in adults, because children have smaller and more delicate blood vessels. Our interventional radiologists and neuroradiologists are highly trained in using the specialized techniques and small catheters necessary for performing this procedure in children.
We are one of the few centers in the world that specialize in minimally invasive, image-guided treatments for aneurysms and disorders of the brain, head, neck and spine in babies and children. Learn more.
New ways of treating and diagnosing vascular malformations
Vascular malformations are tangled and misrouted arteries and veins, which cause pain, swelling, and disfigurement. Because Children's operates a world-famous Vascular Anomalies Center, we have extensive experience in using interventional techniques to evaluate and treat abnormal blood vessels without the need for surgery.
We also specialize in:
- Pediatric tumor diagnosis and therapy
- Radiofrequency ablation, a technique in which an electrode is delivered through a needle to "burn" bone lesions and tumors.
