Interventional Radiology

Our Services


Interventional radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that performs various minimally- invasive procedures using medical imaging guidance, such as x-ray fluoroscopycomputed tomographymagnetic resonance imagingor ultrasoundIR performs both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures through very small incisions or body orificesDiagnostic IR procedures are those intended to help make a diagnosis or guide further medical treatment, and include image-guided biopsy of a tumor or injection of an imaging contrast agent into a hollow structure, such as a blood vessel or a ductBy contrast, therapeutic IR procedures provide direct treatment—they include catheter-based medicine delivery, medical device placement (e.g., stents), and angioplasty of narrowed structures The main benefits of interventional radiology techniques are that they can reach the deep structures of the body through a body orifice or tiny incision using small needles and wiresThat decreases risks, pain, and recovery compared to open proceduresReal-time visualization also allows precision guidance to the abnormality, making the procedure or diagnosis more accurate
