The Division of Community Radiology consists of 28 radiologists practicing in suburban Philadelphia and nearby New Jersey. The practice centers around two growing community hospitals in Chester County and multiple office sites throughout the region. Radiologists in the division focus primarily on providing clinical services at these sites with some resident/fellow teaching occurring in the offices. Although almost all have sub-specialized expertise, division members must be facile with additional core elements of general diagnostic practice. Radiologists may participate in research activities as they choose, but are not required to do so.
Interventional Radiology (IR) is a field of medicine that utilizes the most advanced technology available to perform image-guided procedures to treat a wide variety of diseases throughout the body. As the inventors of balloon angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, Interventional Radiologists pioneered modern minimally invasive medicine.
Interventional Radiology treatments minimize risk, require little to no incisions, are generally performed with sedation rather than general anesthesia, and more importantly have less pain and recovery time than conventional surgery. Interventional Radiologists see and treat patients with a variety of health conditions, forming long-lasting patient-physician relationships.
