What is Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology is one such amazing medical innovation that involves medical imaging which guides minimally invasive surgical procedures that help in diagnosis, treatment and cure of many different kinds of treatments. For imaging, the modalities used are ultrasound, MRI, CT and fluoroscopy.
Interventional Radiology reduces the need for keyhole (laproscopic) or traditional (open) surgery. In this kind of treatment the procedure is carried out using only a small plastic tube which is only of a size of a straw. It is startling how medical images are used to see exactly where the equipment is placed and it can be maneuverer inside the body of the patient without them undergoing any major surgery or incisions.
