This subspecialty of radiology uses imaging technology to guide minimally invasive procedures sometimes done as an alternative to surgery, especially for patients who may be too ill for surgery.
Using fluoroscopy, ultrasound and CT, interventional radiologists guide needles, catheters and other devices through small incisions in the body to reach targeted areas. Most of these procedures are performed using local anesthesia and moderate sedation.
