Introduction to Interventional Oncology

Interventional oncology is a rapidly growing field in cancer care that  involves diagnosis and management of different types of tumours in the body. We offer the following procedures at our practice.

 

Procedures for Interventional Oncology

 

Biopsy

  • A biopsy is a procedure for confirmation and identifying type of cancer to plan further treatment.

Cancer Therapy Vascular Access

  • Includes the creation of portacath insertions (a small device inserted into the chest) and PICC lines placement (A catheter that gives doctors access to central veins near the heart) for cancer patients to receive chemotherapy without the need for repeated needle injections.

Tumour Ablation

  • Involves using minimally invasive techniques to treat tumours or alleviate symptoms.
  • Examples of ablation procedures include radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation and cryoablation.

Tumour Embolization

  • Involves targeted therapy being delivered directly to tumours. There is minimal impact on healthy tissues, and side effects are reduced.
  • Examples of embolization procedures include chemoembolization, radioembolization (selective internal radiation therapy [SIRT]), DC beads chemoembolization and bland embolization.

Vascular Interventions

  • Involves the use of minimally invasive techniques to stop tumor bleeding or to open blockages of normal blood vessels by growing tumor cells. These are usually palliative procedures.

Pain Management Therapies

  • Injections and blocks can be used to provide relief from cancer-related pain.
