Vascular and Interventional Radiology Center

The newly renovated Vascular & Interventional Radiology Center at Norton Audubon Hospital offers state-of-the-art imaging equipment and a full line of interventional radiology services. Two procedure rooms as well as patient preparation and recovery rooms offer privacy and convenience for patients and families. Services are provided by the board-certified radiologists of Norton Diagnostic Center – DXP Imaging.

Interventional radiology is a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed under image guidance for the diagnosis and treatment of a broad spectrum of medical conditions.
