Interventional Radiology

Interventional procedures are specialised procedures performed by highly-trained specialised radiologists using the guidance of Ultrasound or CT, to provide pain management or to aid disease diagnosis. It can be complex, however at Aspire Radiology, our radiologists ensure minimally invasive procedures are performed to inject drugs for pain relief and anti-inflammation or take tissue samples (biopsies) for diagnosis. At Aspire Radiology, pre- and post-procedure information sheets will be provided to patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

IR procedures are minimally invasive, meaning they typically involve smaller incisions, less pain, shorter recovery times, and reduced risk of complications compared to traditional open surgeries.

Interventional Radiology procedures are typically performed by interventional radiologists, who are specially trained physicians with expertise in both radiology and the performance of interventional procedures.

Interventional Radiology relies on various imaging modalities such as X-ray, ultrasound, CT, and sometimes MRI to guide the placement of instruments and monitor the progress of the procedure.

While IR procedures are generally considered safe, there are risks associated with any medical intervention. Although low, these risks can include bleeding, infection, damage to surrounding structures, or allergic reactions to contrast agents. However, at Aspire Radiology, detailed pre- and post-procedure information will be explained to patients.

Depending on the specific procedure and patient factors, sedation or anesthesia may be used to ensure patient comfort and cooperation during the procedure.

The duration of an IR procedure varies widely depending on the specific intervention being performed. Some procedures may take only a few minutes, while others may take up to an hour.

Preparation instructions will vary depending on the specific procedure. You will receive clear instruction prior to their procedure, which may include fasting, medication adjustments, or other specific requirements.

Recovery time varies depending on the specific procedure and your individual circumstances. Some IR procedures allow for a rapid recovery, while others may require a longer period of post-procedure observation.

Again, this depends on the specific procedure and individual patient factors. You will receive post-procedure instructions, including any restrictions on activities, from their healthcare providers.
