Department of Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology

Radiology and imaging play a vital role in modern medicine. These comprise diagnostic and interventional procedures. Diagnostic techniques not only help in accurate diagnosis of the disease, but also guide the clinicians with regards to optimal management of the patient and to monitor response to treatment. Whereas, interventional procedures like biopsy, drainage, vascular and biliary stenting play a major role in patient management. Routine Radiography (x-ray), ultrasonography, mammography, CT scan and MR imaging are the various imaging modalities that house the department of Radiology. Over the past decade, advances in imaging techniques have brought about a considerable change in the health care delivery across the globe, enabling improved and early detection of diseases. The Interventional Radiology is an integral part of many hospitals and medical centers, collaborating closely with other medical specialties to provide a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.

  • What is Radiology

    The Radiology Department, also known as the Medical Imaging Department, is a critical component of a hospital or medical facility. It specializes in using various imaging technologies to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions. The professionals working in the Radiology Department are trained to operate imaging equipment, interpret images, and collaborate with other healthcare providers to guide patient care. 

  • What is Interventional Radiology

    Interventional Radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that uses minimally invasive procedures guided by imaging technologies to diagnose and treat various medical conditions. Interventional radiologists are specially trained physicians who perform these procedures, often using real-time imaging such as fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT scans, or MRI to visualize and guide their actions. The goal of interventional radiology is to provide therapeutic interventions with minimal trauma to the patient, avoiding the need for traditional open surgery.

  • What services does the Radiology Department offer?

    The department provides a range of diagnostic and interventional services, including X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, fluoroscopy, and image-guided procedures.

  • Do I need to prepare for a radiology exam?

    Preparation instructions vary depending on the type of exam. Patients may need to fast, avoid certain medications, or follow specific instructions. The Radiology Department will provide guidelines before the appointment.

  • How long does it take to get the results of a radiology exam?

    Turnaround time for results varies based on the type of exam. Simple X-rays may have quicker results, while more complex studies like MRI or CT scans may take longer. The referring physician typically receives the results and discusses them with the patient.

  • Is radiation exposure a concern during X-ray or CT scans?

    The Radiology Department follows strict guidelines to minimize radiation exposure. The benefits of obtaining diagnostic information usually outweigh the risks. The staff takes precautions to ensure the lowest possible radiation dose.

  • What is the difference between a radiologist and a radiologic technologist?

    A radiologic technologist is responsible for performing imaging procedures, while a radiologist is a physician who interprets the images and provides diagnostic information. Radiologists may also perform certain interventional procedures.
