Also known as: IR, image-guided procedures
Interventional radiology (IR) is when doctors use pictures or images known as “image-guided procedures” to help guide to the body part on the inside that needs to be treated or tested.
These procedures are usually done with tiny instruments, such as small needles, catheters or tubes to reach the internal areas needing the treatment or testing.
Doctors may use X-rays, CT scans, and ultrasounds to guide the medical instruments throughout the body to the area in need of testing. The IR doctor will decide which type of imaging machine is best to use for your child’s procedure or treatment.
IR treatments and procedures provide fewer risks, less pain, and quicker recovery time compared to open surgeries.
