Advantages Of Interventional Radiology

Today, IR is an integral part of various clinical procedures, finding a role in vascular diseases, oncology, stroke management, women’s health, pediatrics, and back pain. Available to us in India are a variety of new IR techniques that have been successfully incorporated into clinical practice, which involve the use of catheters, guide wires, balloons for angioplasty, coils, liquid embolizing agents, stents and stent grafts, radiofrequency ablation devices, thrombectomy devices, etc.
