Interventional Radiology deals with the diagnosis and treatment (intervention) of diseases and conditions of the vascular and peripheral vascular system, biliary system and urinary tract.
This technique is used in most parts of the body, such as the blood vessels, the liver, biliary system and gut as well as the urinary tract. They are carried out in a dedicated x-ray room called the Angiography Suite.
Interventional radiologists are doctors who specialise in performing image guided minimally invasive surgery. Many of these procedures can replace traditional surgical operations which can result in reduced complication rates and shorter stays in hospital.
