What is Interventional Radiology?
Interventional radiology is one of the newest treatments in radiology. Many procedures can be completed in an outpatient setting. Interventional radiology is a minimally invasive, targeted treatment performed using imaging guidance. This group of procedures is often the easier, faster, less painful option to open surgery for a number of diagnoses.
Interventional radiologists use X-rays, ultrasound and other medical images to guide tiny instruments, such as catheters, through the blood vessels or other pathways to perform procedures and treat disease through a small cut in the skin.
