My Interventional Radiologist has treated my liver cancer with radio-frequency tumour ablations. I am grateful to have received this less invasive Interventional Radiology treatment, a very interesting alternative to surgery. At age 85, I continue to be active and to volunteer at my local Canoe Museum.

In 2016, an interventional radiology treatment changed my life. Thanks to uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), gone was the chronic pain I endured for years on end. A short procedure, a one-night stay at the hospital and my symptoms began to subside almost immediately. One month after the treatment, my symptoms had completely disappeared. UFE provides a very attractive alternative to hysterectomy.

I am a 72 years old man, a retired pharmacist. Late 2018, I experienced huge bladder contractions and the pain was excruciating. I could not urinate at all for 33 hours! I went to the hospital where I was told my prostate was dramatically enlarged. Taking drugs to reduce the size of my prostate did not work. I was then sent to specialists and we decided on prostate artery embolization, a procedure performed by an Interventional Radiologist. The procedure was painless and my wife drove me home after a few hours in the recovery room. A few months later, everything is back to normal. My prostate size has gone down by 57%. I highly recommend this procedure as it certainly added to my quality of life.
