Interventional Radiology (IR)
What is IR?
Interventional radiology (IR) is a medical specialty which provides minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment of disease. Although the range of procedures performed by interventional radiologists is broad, the unifying concept behind these procedures is the application of image guidance and minimally invasive techniques in order to minimize risk to the patient.
What is the right technology?
There are a variety of equipment considerations that are essential for both diagnostic and therapeutic IR procedures. What type of guidewires should you use? What guidewire length, diameter, stiffness and coating are best for a given procedure? Why one needle gauge should be used over another? What sized catheter should you use?
