Interventional Radiology is a branch of Radiology which, apart from diagnosing certain conditions, also assists in treating them. Interventional Radiologists are radiologists who have been trained in using special microscopic tools and treatments, usually by inserting special catheters or needles in the targeted organs under imaging guidance.
Many cases that required surgery in the past may now be treated non-surgically. Interventional radiology treatments are less risky and painful, while recovery is faster compared to open surgery. Interventional Radiologists work closely with the clinical physicians of each specialty, so as to offer the most contemporary and suitable treatment to patients.
