Sakra Department of Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology Department

The Department of Interventional Radiology (IR) at Sakra is a subspecialty of radiology that uses image-guided, minimally invasive techniques for both diagnosis and therapy. In other words, it is a medical procedure performed by Interventional radiologist using x-ray fluoroscopy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, or ultrasound.

Interventional radiology, however, is both a diagnostic and therapeutic discipline, where operations are performed using the normal highway system of the body, the network of veins and arteries, through a puncture the size of a pinhole. 
The purpose of using Interventional radiology is to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques to reduce the risk and improve the overall health of the patients. 

The range of Interventional radiology techniques is divided into two main types of procedures such as diagnostic and therapeutic.

Diagnostic Procedure
Diagnostic procedure employs anatomical images either to precisely direct an abnormality biopsy, such as a cancerous tumor, or to insert a radiopaque agent to imagine a hollow structure, such as a blood vessel or canal.

Therapeutic Procedure

Therapeutic procedures specifically direct treatments to an abnormality, such as stents, laser treatment, or clotting agents.

Types of interventional radiology:

  1. Diagnostic interventional radiology: The procedures of diagnostic IR include  Angiography, Cholangiography and Biopsy.
