About Dr. Blake Parsons

Dr. Blake Parsons is originally from Ardmore, Oklahoma and attended medical school at the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center in Fort Worth, TX. He completed his residency at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, OK, where he served as Chief radiology resident. He completed his fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. He is Board Certified in Interventional Radiology. He joined CardioVascular Health Clinic in 2017.

Interventional Radiology utilizes minimally-invasive, image-guided procedures minimizing risk, pain and recovery time in comparison to open surgery. He is dedicated to bringing new procedures to his patients to eliminate the need for invasive surgical procedures. He has introduced innovative procedures like Sphenocath migraine solution, fibroid embolization and more. This field is cutting edge, utilizing techniques that are technologically advanced and not yet used in many other specialties. The field of medicine is constantly evolving and the future of IR holds new, exciting opportunities and possibilities.

In his practice, there is a strong emphasis on patient education, offering clear explanations of the treatment plan, expected outcome, what patients should expect to experience, and alternate treatments. Not all treatment plans are “one size fits all” and Dr. Parsons works with his patients to find the best treatment plan on an individual basis.

Prostate artery embolization technique may vary depending on which arterial access site is chosen (radial vs femoral). Different PAE techniques may also be utilized to minimize off-target embolization.

Prostate artery anatomy

Understanding the variations in prostate artery embolization anatomy is crucial for improving technical success, reducing the chance of re-vascularization and minimizing non-target embolization. The variations in origin of the prostate artery can be sorted in a classification system.
