What is interventional radiology?

Interventional Radiology (also known as I.R is the minimally invasive, image-guided treatment of medical conditions that once required open surgery. By using the power of advanced imaging (ultrasound, X-rays. CT scans, MRI scans and other innovative methods), interventional radiologists can see inside your body and treat complex conditions with the help of the devices such as needles, catheters, balloons and stents to open blocked blood vessels, block bleeding vessels, treatment of aneurysms, drain fluid collections, drain bile ducts and kidneys, perform biopsies and treat many other conditions less invasively and with unprecedented precision.

How interventional radiology works?
Interventional radiologists differ from conventional surgeons by using digital technology to make repairs in the body and by making tiny or no incisions. Most interventional radiology procedures begin with the prick of a needle. Then the interventional radiologist guides a thin wire and a catheter through a blood vessel to reach and treat the source of the pain or disease. The radiologist watches the inside of the body on monitor screens & accordingly uses the instruments.
Advantages of interventional radiology

 Ø  Interventional radiology offers several advantages over traditional invasive procedures:

Ø  Less invasive & performed through a cut of the size of a pencil's tip

Ø  No large scars, risks or pain & recovery time is significantly reduced

Ø  Most I.R procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis (shorter hospital stay)

Ø  Moderate sedation can be used instead of general anesthesia.

Treatments via interventional radiology
Interventional Radiologists have developed procedures that can help a number of medical conditions. Some of the most common Interventional Radiology procedures are as follow:
Vascular Disease

Ø   Angioplasty and Stenting for Peripheral Vascular Disease

Ø  Venography for Upper and Lower Extremities

Ø  Peripheral Angiography using Carbon Dioxide for Impaired Renal Function

Ø  Venous Angioplasty, Stenting and Recanalization

Trauma
Embolization for Hemorrhage Control Following Arterial or Visceral Injury
Oncological

Ø TACE — Transarterial Chemoembolization for Liver Cancer and Metastatic Disease

Ø  RFA — Radiofrequency Ablation of Lung, Liver and Renal Tumors

Ø  PEI — Percutaneous Ethanol Injection

Ø  Port - A - Cath Insertion for Chemotherapy

Ø  Tunneled and Non-tunneled Central Venous Access

Ø  CT Guided Nerve Block
