Interventional radiology is a cutting edge modern medical subspecialty consisting of board-certified physicians who offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience. They use X-rays, MRI and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body to treat at the source of the disease internally offering minimally invasive treatments. Conditions which previously required surgery can be treated by interventional radiologists with less risk, less pain, and less recovery time compared to open surgery.
Benefits of interventional radiology treatments:
A traditional "diagnostic" radiologist uses imaging devices to rule out or uncover a problem, and then turns his findings over to another specialist. An interventional radiologist is trained to treat most of the diseases he will discover. As the treating physician, the interventional radiologist works closely with the patient, explaining and performing the procedure, handling any unexpected events, and providing follow up care with the patient.
