Varicose veins are a symptom of weakened veins and valves in the legs. There are one-way valves that keep blood flowing upward from the legs toward the heart. When these valves don’t function properly, blood collects in the legs and pressure is built up. As a result, the veins become large, twisted and weak. Laser ablation treatment is done for this…
The department of radiology provides imaging services for procedures such as stenting or angioplasty, wherein a catheter is guided into clogged arteries. A small balloon accompanies the catheter to open the artery, thereby allowing blood flow to occur.
A biopsy involves the removal of small tissue samples or cells to diagnose the presence of a disease. This is generally an outpatient procedure and it involves minimal preparation
Interventional radiologists at Manipal hospital coordinate closely with the Department of Oncology to help in the treatment of cancer patients. Some common procedures and treatments used are IRE, pre-op embolizations, percutaneous interventions radiofrequency ablation or transarterial chemo-embolization (TACE) or transarterial radio-embolization (TARE)…
CT scan is done with the use of X-rays to take pictures of the patient’s body internally.
This is a common condition that is usually the result of atherosclerosis which affects those with scar tissue and cholesterol buildup. Treatment mainly consists of catheter-directed thrombolysis, angioplasty and stenting and catheter assisted thrombectomy.
Blood clots are known as thrombus form in the deep leg vein and can lead to serious permanent damage that is referred to as a post-thrombotic syndrome. It can also lead to pulmonary embolism which is life-threatening. Interventional radiology provides treatment for this condition through IVC filter, catheter assisted thrombectomy and catheter-directed…
MRI detects many conditions in the upper and lower regions of the body. It involves a powerful magnetic field that is combined with radio waves to produce images of the body’s internal structures. This includes bones, organs, and soft tissues.
Patients that suffer from renal failure or chronic kidney disease will undergo replacement therapy, which is in the form of dialysis. The Interventional Radiology department provides treatment such as AV fistula savage (through angioplasty), central vein angioplasty or stenting, perm catheter placement, peritoneal dialysis (catheter placement).
The sudden blockage of major arteries in the lung is caused by blood clots. The lungs can be damaged by these clots. Interventional radiology provides treatment in the form of catheter-directed thrombectomy/thrombolysis.
In some cases, regular radiology exams will not be able to obtain a specific image of the patient’s internal body and so nuclear medicine exams come into play. These types of exams use gamma rays along with a special camera to obtain the required images.
TIPS is a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt procedure th at is used to treat internal bleeding in the esophagus or stomach, for patients with cirrhosis. Imaging is used during the procedure to connect the portal and hepatic vein in the liver. A metal device known as a stent will hold the connection open, allowing blood flow from the bowel…
This therapy involves the use of cold, hot or chemical agents to treat cancerous tumors. Manipal hospital’s department of radiology specializes in the use of cryotherapy and microwave for tumor ablation.
Uterine fibroid embolization is used to treat fibroid tumors in the uterus. A catheter is steered through an artery to the uterus using fluoroscopy (x-ray imaging). It is a minimally invasive procedure and it is highly effective in pain reduction from fibroid tumors that are generally associated with menstrual bleeding.
If abnormalities are detected in the breast after a mammogram but cannot be physically detected, then a thin write inserted by a needle is used by the doctor to obtain tissue samples for a more accurate diagnosis of a breast mass.
X-rays are used to obtain images of the internal regions of the body. This helps doctors make accurate diagnoses

Interventional Radiology (IR) is a subspecialty of radiology that uses image-guided, minimally invasive procedures for accurate diagnosis and treatment. An interventional radiologist is a physician who uses image guidance and specialised procedures to obtain access to the body's different organs and blood vessels. Manipal hospital houses the highly skilled Best Interventional Radiologist in Delhi.

A specialist will first gather general information about the patient's health, review their medical history, and conduct a physical examination. Based on the findings, further treatment or diagnostic procedures are recommended.
If done properly, there is no recurrence of disease at all.
Very safe compared to surgical procedure.
MRI can accurately localize the brain lesion as well as various motor / sensory tracks in the brain by DTI /tractography and helps neurosurgeon to avoid damaging these vital tracks during surgery.
The doctor or physician will discuss your symptoms and prescribe tests for further diagnosis.
Yes, it is very safe during pregnancy being a non-ionizing imaging modality.
Low dose CT scan can detect very small lung lesions (less than 1 cm) with minimal radiation to the body, hence helpful for diagnosis of lung cancer in very early stage.
These are two separate examinations with different objectives. CT angiogram is non-invasive and done in a CT scanner. Whereas a catheter angiogram is an invasive procedure. CT angiogram depicts coronary vessels nicely with visualization of calcified/non-calcified plaques and has a very high negative predictive value (95-100 %). Hence this examination is more suitable to rule out coronary artery disease non-invasively.
Not exactly. In a healthy patient with normal renal function, contrast is not harmful to the body, because the contrast is excreted through the kidneys within 24 hours. In a patient with poor renal function, the contrast is accumulated in the body and is harmful and may damage the kidneys further.

Digital X-ray provides more clear images with significantly reduced radiation to the patient compared to conventional X-ray. Get in touch with the Top X-ray Hospital in Delhi - Manipal hospitals.
No. X-ray has radiation hazard and is dangerous to the growing foetus in the womb.
It is used to examine structures in the brain, pelvis, legs, kidneys, neck, heart and abdomen. It is also used to examine blood vessels.
Clots, tumors, lumps, cirrhosis of the liver, internal bleeding of organs are a few of the common disorders that require immediate radiological testing.
Most radiology tests are minimally invasive and not painful. In the case of a painful the procedure, the patient may be given local or general anesthesia depending on the procedure involved.
Equipment used include x-ray tubes, radiographic tables, monitors and image intensifiers.
Radiology tests are mostly accurate but sometimes doctors may need to prescribe further tests to be sure of a diagnosis. At Manipal, we ensure accuracy in radiological testing.
The nurse or technologist will insert the IV line into a vein in the hand or arm. Small amount of blood is taken before the procedure begins and a sedative is provided. When the catheter has to be inserted, local anaesthesia is given to the patient to avoid pain. The catheter is inserted into a mall slit and guided through the arteries to areas that need to be examined.
