Minimally invasive, maximally effective: Choose Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology (IR) is a subspecialty of radiology that uses imaging techniques, such as X-rays, MRI, and ultrasound, to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures. IR is often used to diagnose and treat a range of medical conditions, including cancer, blockages in the blood vessels, and pain management. IR procedures are less invasive than traditional surgeries and typically involve smaller incisions, less pain, and a shorter recovery time. IR is an innovative field that continues to advance the diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions.

  • Interventional Oncology: IR is used to treat various types of cancer using minimally invasive techniques, such as radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, cryoablation and chemo-embolization.
  • Pain Management: IR is used to provide relief for chronic pain conditions, such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and osteoporotic compression fractures.
  • Biopsies: IR is used to perform biopsies, which are minimally invasive procedures that involve taking small samples of tissues to be analyzed for various conditions.
  • Drainage Procedures: IR is used to drain fluid collections, abscesses, and bile duct obstructions.
