What is Interventional Radiology?

Interventional Radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that uses image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions throughout the body. The IR department is a specialized unit in a hospital that performs minimally invasive procedures using imaging techniques such as X-ray, CT, MRI, and ultrasound to guide the procedures. The department is staffed by highly trained radiologists near me and technologists skilled in performing a wide range of procedures.

Interventional radiologists are specially trained physicians who perform these procedures. They use a range of techniques to access and treat specific areas of the body through small incisions or punctures, minimizing the need for traditional open surgery. The procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia or conscious sedation, reducing the risks and recovery time associated with major surgery.

Common Procedures Performed in Interventional Radiology

Some common procedures performed in interventional radiology include:

  • Angiography and Angioplasty: Using catheters and stents to evaluate and treat blood vessel diseases, such as narrowing or blockages.
  • Embolization: Blocking blood vessels or abnormal tissue growth, often used to treat tumors, aneurysms, or uterine fibroids.
  • Biopsy and Drainage: Collecting tissue samples or draining fluids from different parts of the body, guided by imaging.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) and Microwave Ablation: Destroying tumors using heat energy, often used for liver, lung, or kidney tumors.
  • Transarterial Chemoembolization (TACE): Delivering chemotherapy drugs directly to tumors in the liver while blocking their blood supply.
  • Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty: Treating compression fractures in the spine by injecting bone cement into the fractured vertebrae.
  • Percutaneous Nephrostomy: Placing a tube through the skin into the kidney to drain urine in cases of urinary tract obstruction.
  • Venous Access: Inserting catheters into veins for long-term access, such as for chemotherapy, dialysis, or nutrition.

Interventional radiology offers several advantages, including shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, reduced pain, and lower risk of complications compared to traditional surgery. It is considered an integral part of modern medicine, providing effective and minimally invasive alternatives for many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

It's important to consult with a qualified interventional radiologist or your healthcare provider to determine the suitability of interventional radiology procedures for your specific medical condition. They can provide more information and discuss the recommended procedures' benefits, risks, and expected outcomes.
