Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology in Ernakulam.

What is interventional radiology?
Interventional radiology (IR) is a super specialty branch of radiology. Interventional
radiologists are specially trained physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted
treatments using radiology modalities.
Under image guidance (X-ray, CT scan or sonography) interventional radiologist enters
blood vessel of the body via a small cut on skin and can provide treatment of a variety of disease
of almost all organ system locally by using special tubes (catheters), wire, stent or blocking
agents. Image-guided cancer therapy (thermal ablation) is also done by an interventional
radiologist. Specialty also includes non-vascular procedures like biopsy, drainage of
infected fluid collection in the body.

Advantages of treatment by Interventional Radiology

  • Less pain (as large incision are not required)
