Sorry, We could not find Doctors for you
A medical sub-speciality that uses medical imaging guidance such as ultrasound, computed tomography, X-ray fluoroscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging to perform minimally-invasive procedures is known as interventional radiology. Doctors who specialise in this field are known as interventional radiologists.
Are interventional radiologists doctors?
Yes, interventional radiologists are doctors who completed medical school and then specialised in interventional radiology.
What procedures are performed by interventional radiologists?
Some of the procedures performed by interventional radiologists are angioplasty (repair or unblocking of blood vessels), thrombolysis (dissolving blood clots), biopsies, stenting, embolization (blocking of blood flow to cancer cells), and radiofrequency ablation (nerve pain reduction).
Do interventional radiologists perform surgeries?
Interventional radiologists perform surgeries but they do not perform traditional surgeries. Instead, they use imaging techniques to perform minimally invasive procedures. Interventional radiology procedures are less painful and less risky in comparison to traditional procedures.
