The Interventional radiology research group consists of a diverse group of physicians and scientists that strive to develop novel minimally invasive methods for treating a wide range of disease using image guided approaches. A major focus of this group has the development of novel drug delivery systems in conjunction with the interventional oncology group. Interventional radiology researchers collaborate with departments across Feinberg and Northwestern University, including oncology, transplant surgery, hepatology, vascular surgery, biomedical engineering, molecular biology.
Feinberg’s research in interventional radiology includes:
- Development of novel drug delivery systems using nanotechnology approaches
- Improved placement and design of inferior vena cava filters
- Techniques for catheter based radioembolization of liver tumors
- Radiofrequency ablation of tumors in different anatomic regions
- Development of new and improved hardware for use in interventional devices
- Minimally invasive treatment of uterine fibroids and prostate neoplasms
