Vascular & Interventional Radiology Services

Vascular and interventional radiology (VIR or IR) provides cutting-edge treatments for many conditions, including uterine fribroids, cancer, and peripheral arterial disease. Our dedicated team of vascular and interventional physicians use image-guidance to perform minimally invasive vascular treatments. If you have a medical condition that can be diagnosed or treated with VIR, this advanced treatment approach is available to you—right here in Maine.

Conditions Treated

Uterine Fibroids

Uterine Fibroids are noncancerous smooth muscle tumors of the uterus.

Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) usually results from the hardening of the arteries associated with cholesterol deposits.

Varicose Veins

Varicose vein disease is common and may result in mild cosmetic changes in the legs.

Prostate Conditions

Prostate conditions can affect men of any age.


Interventional radiology techniques are quickly becoming standard therapies for cancer treatment.

Spinal Compression Fractures

Spinal compression fractures occur when the vertebral body in the spine collapses, which can lead to severe pain, deformity, and loss of height.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in one or more of the deep veins in the body, usually in the legs.

How Vascular and Interventional Radiology Procedures Work

With VIR, the interventional radiologist uses ultrasound, x-rays, fluoroscopy or CT scanning to guide catheters, needles or other devices to the treatment site inside your body.

Instead of the large incisions required by traditional open surgery, VIR procedures are performed through small, often tiny incisions. As a result, you benefit from:

  • Less pain and bleeding
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Faster recovery and earlier return to work
  • Lower cost since most procedures are done on an outpatient basis
  • Better cosmetic result with less scarring
