Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology (IR) is a specialized field within radiology. Interventional radiologists are doctors who are experienced in interpreting your scans, diagnosing your condition as well as performing minimally invasive procedures through very small incisions and hence the term “pinhole surgery”. In interventional radiology, specialist doctors use medical imaging to guide minimally invasive procedures that diagnose, treat, and cure various types of conditions. Imaging modalities used include fluoroscopy, CT, ultrasound and MRI. Interventional radiology reduces overall cost, recovery time, pain, and risk to patients who would otherwise need traditional open surgery. Recent advances have allowed IR to become the first option in treating many conditions. This field is very innovative and brings in a new dimension to improving healthcare and outcomes for the patients.
