Interventional Radiology is a sub-specialty of Diagnostic Radiology that has evolved over the past 25 years to become an integral part of comprehensive patient care, providing alternatives to surgery for a broad range of health problems.
State-of-the-art imaging techniques including ultrasound, computed tomography (CT scans) and are utilized to guide the placement of needles, catheters and devices directly to target sites deep within the body through a small skin incision. These procedures are often performed under local anesthesia with intravenous (IV) sedation and typically do not require general anesthesia.
