Depending on your health needs, your doctor may refer you for one or more services at the Trios Cardiovascular Catheterization and Interventional Radiology Lab—simply referred to as the cath lab—at Trios Hospital. The Trios Cath Lab provides a variety of minimally and non-invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in both inpatient and outpatient situations.
Interventional radiology is an alternative to invasive surgery. It helps diagnose or treat many cardiac and other medical conditions by using x-rays, ultrasound, CT scans, or other imaging techniques to guide tiny tubes, stents, wires, or other very small devices through tiny punctures in the skin.
