Interventional radiology abroad

Interventional radiology is a medical specialization that provides a minimally invasive, visual inspection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of any organ or system. The interventional radiologist carefully interprets the images for the diagnosis of injuries and diseases, as well as for performing a series of interventional medical procedures.


Images are used to direct catheters and instruments to the exact area where the procedure or treatment should be performed. This reduces the need for traditional (open) or locking (laparoscopic) surgery, since treatment can be performed with a small plastic tube the size of straw.


Compared to open surgery, these procedures are less painful, reduce the risk of infection, and have shorter periods of recovery and hospital stay.


Interventional radiology is necessarily performed in conjunction with imaging procedures, such as: fluoroscopy, digital subtraction angiography, ultrasound, based on the same principle as fluoroscopy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging.
