Interventional Radiology

CARDIOVASCULAR AND INTERVENTIONAL ASSOCIATES OF

Association of Alexandria Radiologists, PC (AAR) Logo

AAR’s interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in image guided, minimally invasive targeted treatments for vascular disease, cancer, aneurisms, uterine fibroids, infertility, pain management and many other complex medical conditions that once could only be treated with conventional surgery.

Treatments with interventional radiology involve the use of imaging technology to guide small devices, such as micro catheters, through arteries, blood vessels or other pathways inside the body to deliver targeted treatment or therapy at the source of the disease.

Our Interventional radiologists perform thousands of procedures annually at our partner hospitals, and many have consistently been voted by their peers to be ‘Top Doctors’ in Northern Virginia and Washingtonian Magazines.
