Interventional Radiology is the subspeciality field of radiology that involves minimally invasive procedures.
This usually involves a needle that may be used to biopsy an organ, inject into the spine, or the treat a tendon injury. Imaging equipment, such as a CT scanner or Ultrasound, are used to safely and accurately guide the needle into the appropriate location. Interventional Radiology therefore ensures minimal discomfort, often avoids surgery and a rapid recovery.
