A fascinating insight into interventional radiology is the topic of this show. Dr. Sepehr Panah from Quantum Radiology provides us with a greater understanding of how this specialty can improve our health. All brought to you by HealthGate.
Interventional radiology (abbreviated IR or VIR for Vascular and Interventional Radiology, also referred to as Surgical Radiology) is a medical sub-specialty of radiology which utilizes minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. The concept behind interventional radiology is to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques currently available in order to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes.
