Interventional radiology (IR) is a range of minimally invasive radiology image-guided techniques and treatments. IR uses CT, ultrasound, MRI and other imaging technologies to direct catheters and other instruments through the body. These minimally invasive procedures represent the best in modern health care, and often replace both traditional and laparoscopic surgical techniques, causing less trauma to the body and making health care practices safer for patients.
With today’s advanced radiological imaging, these procedures are made possible with full access to detailed images of a patient’s internal anatomy. Interventional radiology treatments benefit patients, who experience reduced risk and pain and shorter recovery time because these procedures are truly minimally invasive. In addition, costs of IR procedures are frequently lower than that of open surgery.
