Interventional radiology for multiple myeloma

With interventional radiology, our doctors can visualize tumors and perform real-time image-guided interventional procedures. We can deliver treatment directly to tumors, perform image-guided bone marrow biopsies, lymph node biopsies, and vascular catheter and port placements. We can also provide vascular access for stem cell transplantation, and provide palliative treatment.

Kyphoplasty is an example of a minimally invasive procedure used to relieve pain from compression fractures of the spinal vertebrae caused by multiple myeloma.
