To be a great veterinarian is one thing, but the ability to maintain compassion and caring sets you apart from the rest.
Interventional radiology (IR) refers to a subspecialty of radiology in which advanced imaging techniques including ultrasound, fluoroscopy (continuous x-ray), CT, and MRI are used to guide the delivery of materials for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
IR is part of an initiative at Hope Veterinary Specialists directed toward providing advanced therapies for companion animals in a minimally invasive fashion. This minimally invasive approach to treatment has many benefits for the patient and pet owner alike.
Hope Veterinary Specialists is one of the only facilities in the area with an IR service. The IR team is made up of Drs. Hadley Bagshaw, Dennis Burkett, and Steve Mehler.
The IR service does not have specific service hours. However, they are available during normal business hours for consultations with clients and referring veterinarians.
The IR service operates on an appointment-only basis; however, like all services at Hope VS, they recognize that certain disease processes necessitate emergency treatment—and they are able to meet these needs.
