Raj Ayyagari, MD

Assistant Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging; Radiology Director for Male Interventional Health

Physician Biography

I perform image-guided minimally invasive surgical procedures. These include chemoembolization (injecting microscopic beads coated with a chemotherapy drug), radioembolization (injecting microscopic beads carrying a radioactive dose), and ablation (passing a small needle through the skin, into the tumor, and burning or freezing it to death). I also perform biopsies, place venous access catheters, and perform many other procedures related to the evaluation and treatment of liver cancer.
