Image-Guided Procedures

Image-Guided Procedures in Fayetteville & Angier, NC

At Valley Radiology, we want you to know that radiology doesn’t have to be invasive and uncomfortable. By offering Image-Guided Procedures (IGP), we are able to get the vital information we need in order to diagnose abnormalities, tumors, and health concerns within your body while keeping you comfortable. With this information we will be able to proceed with proper treatment that is minimally-invasive, and provide you with the best care possible.

CT-Guided Biopsy

A CT-Guided Biopsy is a procedure where we collect tissue or a fluid specimen from an organ or suspected tumor mass. Using Computed Tomography (CT) allows for incredible precision as the physician collects the sample. By examining the cells or tissue, we can get a definite diagnosis of whether or not there is cancer located in the area of concern. We offer CT-guided biopsies for:

  • Liver
  • Chest/Lung
  • Chemoembolization of liver tumors
  • Radioembolization of liver tumors
  • Kidney biopsy
  • Abscess drainage

Ultrasound-Guided Procedures

With Ultrasound-Guided Procedures our physicians can evaluate many organ systems without the use of radiation. These procedures allow our physicians to determine a diagnosis if the patient is experiencing any pain, swelling or infection. We use ultrasound-guidance procedures for:

  • Breast or liver  biopsy
  • Fine needle aspiration (FNA) for thyroid or breast
  • Paracentesis for abdomen
  • EVLT (endovascular laser treatment) for varicose veins
  • Spider vein treatment sclerotherapy
  • Thoracentesis

Fluoro-Guided Procedures

Fluoroscopy is utilized in many different types of procedures and examinations and contains moving, real-time images of the inside of the body. This technology allows us to monitor many body systems including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems, all at the same time. Fluoro-guided procedures allows us to look into the patient’s body without the use of anesthesia or sedation. We use fluro-guided procedures for:

  • Arthrocentesis
  • Arthrogram
  • Spinal epidural injections
  • Angiograms
  • Coiling for aneurysms of the brain
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Renal stenting for stenosis
  • Uterine fibroid embolization
  • Hysterosalpingogram
  • Percutaneous drainages
  • Joint injections for pain or aspiration
  • Treatment of PAD
  • Gastrostomy tube placement
  • Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS)
