INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY Interventional Radiology is a medical sub-speciality of radiology which utilizes minimally – invasive image – guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. The concept behind interventional radiology is to treat patients using the least invasive techniques currently available in order to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes. These procedures are usually performed using needles and narrow tubes called catheters, rather than by making large incision into the body as in traditional surgery. Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically by interventional radiologists. By minimizing the physical trauma to the patient, interventions can reduce infection rates and recovery time, as well as shorten hospital days.
