Interventional Radiology

What is interventional radiology?

Interventional radiology is a subspecialty of radiology. Interventional radiologists are medical doctors. They are a special type of radiologist who use non-surgical image-guided techniques to diagnose and treat certain conditions. They provide targeted treatment. These procedures have less pain, cost and recovery time compared to traditional ‘open’ surgery requiring larger incisions. Interventional procedures have replaced many older, traditional surgeries.
