Our IR Team
Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists is committed to providing superior care and are trained to use leading-edge techniques to detect and treat disease. The Scott & White IR department is a collaboration of interventional radiologists, radiology nurses and radiologic technologists all highly trained to specialize in their field.
Our interventional radiologists use their expertise in interpreting X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, CT and other diagnostic imaging studies to understand, visualize, diagnose and treat the full scope of a disease and its pathology. This method allows the interventional radiologist to map out the procedure and tailor it to each patient's individual needs.
Our IR team consults with you and your primary physician on the best course of action. The results of your procedure are promptly shared with your physician and added to your electronic medical record. This team approach allows for better and more timely follow up with your physician to make sure to create the best plan for your care.
