Interventional radiology is a field of radiology that includes techniques used for diagnosis and treatment in many areas of medicine. Interventional radiology includes diagnosis and treatment methods that are performed by entering the body through a hole the size of a pinhole, usually by applying local anesthesia to the patient.
Interventional radiology provides clear information about the disease that can be treated with simpler interventions than in the past, without the need for diagnostic surgical applications and open operations.
Imaging methods such as angiography, computed tomography and ultrasound for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases are among the most frequently used interventional radiology applications.
The procedures performed in this context are as follows: Thyroid biopsy Liver biopsy Kidney biopsy Lung biopsy Bone biopsy Abscess drainage Thorax and abdomen fluid drainage
