Moolchand Centre for Interventional Radiology offers state-of-the-art technology to perform a wide range of image guided procedures. Using interventional techniques we are able to diagnose and treat many common as well as rare disorders.  Interventional radiology offers an alternative to the surgical treatment of many conditions and can eliminate the need for hospitalization, in some cases.

Interventional radiology, also known as image-guided surgery is a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance.  Some of these procedures are done for purely diagnostic purposes, while others are done for treatment purposes.  Images are used to direct interventional procedures, which are usually done with needles and narrow tubes called catheters.  The images provide road maps that allow the interventional radiologist to guide these instruments through the body to the areas containing disease.  By minimizing the physical trauma to the patient, peripheral interventions can reduce infection rates and recovery time as well as shorten hospital stay.
