The Regional Leader in Interventional and Neuroradiology

Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically by interventional radiology. Interventional Radiology is a medical sub-specialty of imaging utilizing minimally invasive, image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system using the least invasive techniques. These procedures have less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.

At Portsmouth Regional Hospital’s Center for Interventional Radiology, you have access to the most comprehensive interventional radiology services on the Seacoast.
