Interventional Radiology for Cancer Patients (IR) involves minimally invasive , image guided therapeutic procedures without surgery and is performed by Interventional Radiologists . Interventional Radiology is one of the biggest recent advances in medical science and has grown substantially in recent years with the improvements in hardwares and equipments .
Interventional Radiology plays a vital role in care of cancer patients . The biggest advantage of Interventional Radiology is the ability to access any organ in the body without any major incision . Infact the hole or incision made to access and carry out the procedure is so small in almost all cases , that there is no need for even a single suture . Also with precise imaging guidance only the diseased area is targeted making these procedures very safe with minimal chance of complications . Most of the patients tolerate these procedures excellently and are usually back to their normal routine as early as within a few hours from their procedures or in certain cases by the next day .
To carry out these procedures we have a team of well trained Interventional Radiologists and advanced equipments including two multislice CT scanners (16 slice and 128 slice dual energy ) , a 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner , fluoroscopy equipment , a well equipped cath lab and ultrasound equipments .
