Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology

The Radiology and Imaging Instituteoffers facilities for both diagnostic as well as interventional radiology.

  • Diagnostic Radiology

This is used for the wide spectrum of imaging techniques that help to view the internal structures and organs in order to evaluate and assess the condition of the patient and how thepatient is responding to the treatment. Some of the common procedures offered include:

  • Computed Tomography (CT) scan
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Mammography
  • Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging/scan. PET combined with CT scan Ultrasound
  • Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology, on the other hand, involves the use of imaging guidance techniques for giving medical therapies to the patients. It involves the use of a special catheter, wires, and needle that are introduced inside the patient’s body and then guided towards the affected area with the help of the generated images. The technique is widely used for treating cancer patients and has shown commendable results. Some of the procedures offered include:

  • Angiography/Angioplasty and Stent Placement
  • Embolization
  • Radiofrequency Ablation
  • Vertebroplasty
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Biopsy for cancer
