Interventional and Therapeutic Radiology 

The section is a specialty of Radiology using minimally invasive image-guided (X-rays, CT, Ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging modalities) diagnosis and treatment of a certain disease. These procedures use images for guidance of instruments (needles and tiny tubes called catheters) as road maps for the interventional radiologist. By minimizing the physical trauma in patients, peripheral intrusions will reduce infection rates, shorten the recovery time in the hospital and reduce the amount of sedation needed.
The following are the services offered by the section:
