A biopsy is the removal of a necessary sample of cells or tissue, which are then examined in a lab in order to determine whether cells are cancerous or benign. The amount of tissue removed and method of removal (e.g., endoscopic, needle, etc.) varies by the location of the suspicious tissue and other individual factors.
Embolization is a treatment that is designed to block the flow of blood in one or more blood vessels. This minimally invasive procedure requires the use of a catheter to deliver an embolizing agent into the target blood vessel and stop blood flow, such as to a tumor, between abnormal connections between veins and arteries, or to prevent abnormal bleeding.
The myelogram is a diagnostic test for the spinal canal performed via X-ray or CT imaging. The use of contrast dye in the procedure allows for much more detailed, specific imaging than a standard X-ray, as well as a clear view of the nerves of the spine. Myelograms are used to diagnose conditions like spinal stenosis and disc herniations, as well as tumors, arthritis, or infections in the spine.
A nephrostogram is an X-ray procedure used to examine the kidneys, ureter, and bladder in patients with a nephrostomy catheter. Using contrast dye, the imaging shows catheter placement and the flow of urine to determine whether the device is still needed, according to drainage levels and/or blockages that are still present.
Stent placement is a procedure used to treat blocked or narrowed arteries. The stent itself is a small metal tube (often mesh or coiled) that holds the artery open to allow for uninhibited blood flow and prevent heart attacks and strokes that could result from clotting in blocked arteries. Stents are placed with a catheter, are permanent, and are placed in tandem with an angioplasty.
A thrombectomy is the surgical removal of a blood clot from an artery or vein in order to return normal blood flow to treat or prevent problems such as stroke or pulmonary embolism. It’s a minimally invasive (and often time-sensitive) procedure completed by placing a catheter into the affected blood vessel, which is then held open by a stent while the clot is retrieved and removed.
A venogram is a X-ray procedure that allows the doctor to examine the veins. It’s used to diagnose conditions such as blood clots (including deep vein thrombosis in the legs) or to assess the veins for IV, bypass, or dialysis purposes. An injectable contrast dye is used to make the veins visible with X-ray imaging.
