Interventional Oncology is a growing field, encompassing an array of procedures including localized cancer treatments (Y90 radioembolization, transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE), cryo/thermal ablation), CT and ultrasound guided biopsies, and venous access (chemotherapy port placement). Venous thromboembolism intervention includes deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism clot removal (thrombectomy) as well as venous stenting.
