Dr. Stephen A Leschak has the following 2 specialties
- Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Interventional radiologists, also known as vascular radiologists, use minimally-invasive imaging techniques to diagnose conditions in your organs and blood vessels. For example, if you need an angiography (an x-ray of the arteries) to diagnose a blockage in your blood vessels, your doctor will refer you to an interventional radiologist. They can, if needed, perform an angioplasty to open up the blocked passage.
They’re also trained to perform needle biopsies, insert stents, treat varicose veins and obstructions of the urinary tract (possibly due to kidney stones) and can help with dangerous postpartum bleeding. They treat various types of fibroids and embolization, which is a clot, air bubble or other blockage in the bloodstream. While the types of imaging procedures they perform are more invasive than x-rays done to identify broken bones, pain levels and recovery time are usually minimal.
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

More about Dr. Stephen A Leschak
I entered the rapidly growing field of interventional radiology because it is an exciting, evolving and challenging subspeciality area of medicine. Interventional radiologists are physicians who specialize in minimally-invasive, targeted treatments performed using imaging guidance. The procedures we perform are quite advanced and often replace open surgical procedures. I have practiced as part of the diagnostic imaging department at Fox Chase since 2002.Interventional radiology procedures offer cost-effective, health-care alternatives to certain conventional medical and surgical treatments. There are fewer risks involved and, typically, a reduced hospitalization time for patients.Frequently, interventional radiology procedures are the only viable therapeutic option for critically ill patients unable to tolerate surgery. Advances in interventional radiology have pioneered modern medicine and given rise to state-of-the-art treatments that are commonplace in today's medicine. As technology advances and high-quality imaging equipment becomes more widely available, we will have the ability to offer patients and referring physicians a variety of new treatment options.
