Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology (IR) is a super-speciality of radiology that provides image-guided, minimally invasive techniques for precise diagnosis and delivery of precise treatment to patients. Interventional radiology techniques are the least invasive, so definitive diagnostic and /or therapeutic options are available for patients. with cancer ( pl delete )

Interventional techniques are used for treating different diseases that involve virtually any part of the body. With the use of advanced technology, we are able to deliver optimal results with minimal risk. The use of image-guided procedures helps in diagnosing and treating early-stage diseases or conditions with minimal invasion, without surgery.

Most of the IR procedures are done on outpatient basis or daycare admission only, which reduces the hospital stay of patients and enables them to return home faster. This minimises the disruption to daily lives of the patient and also their near and dear ones.

Consequently, procedures under interventional radiology tend to be less expensive than other forms of therapy and are associated with less risk and procedure complications, while giving the best results to patients.

Interventional Radiology overlaps/ works in conjunction with various other medical disciplines including Gastroenterology, Gastrointestinal surgery , Pulmonology, Gynaecology, General surgery, Vasccular surgery etc.

Who is an Interventional Radiologist?

An interventional radiologist is a doctor who uses image guidance and special techniques  to gain access to various organs and blood vessels insode the body. They can treat various conditions through the skin (percutaneously) that might otherwise need surgery. An interventional radiologist uses catheters, balloons, stents, coils to treat various conditions.

What are the advantages of Interventional Radiology?

Interventional radiology offers many benefits over traditional invasive procedures including:

  • Daycare / No admission
  • No Scars

Since interventional radiology is a minimally invasive procedure, there are no scars left on the skin after the procedure. The risk is also minimised, and the pain is mostly reduced.

  • Less risk / Less complications
  • Less pain
  • Less Bleeding

The procedures under interventional radiology do not require significantly large incisions and are usually performed througha small cut, typically the size of a pen’s tip.

  • Faster recovery

Interventional radiology is a fast process.  Most of the procedures can be done on a outpatient or daycare admission basis.. The recovery is quick, and most patients do not have to stay in the hospital for long durations.

  • Minimal requirement of General Anesthesia

 Most procedures do not require General Anesthesia and can be done under Local anesthesia or moderate sedation.

  • Cost-Effective

    Most of the procedures are highly cost-effective when compared to traditional invasive procedures or other alternatives.

Procedures

Interventional radiology consists of various procedures which help not only in diagnosing but also treating many conditions.  Angiography, FNACs and biopsies, are some of the diagnostic procedures under interventional radiology. However, with the advent of medical sciences diagnostic procedures, the diagnosis with interventional radiology is becoming less frequent. CT and MRI scans are becoming more reliable in terms of quality and have paved their way towards alternative forms of non-invasive evaluation. (Pl delete)
