Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology is a minimally invasive treatment for vascular and non-vascular disease, using small catheters and catheter-based instruments guided by radiological imaging techniques such as x-rays, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, MRI and CT. These non-surgical techniques are advancing medicine and improving outcomes for a range of patients with life-threatening conditions. These procedures are performed by an interventional radiologist - a radiologist that diagnoses and treats patients using the least invasive techniques available. These advanced imaging procedures are replacing many open surgical procedures because they provide for easier recovery, very small incisions, less procedural risk, less pain and shorter recovery times.
