Interventional Procedural Directory

A guide for medical practitioners referring to Queensland X-Ray

At Queensland X-Ray we provide a wide range of interventional studies across the state.

Most of the interventional procedures are carried out at one of our complex hospital sites. However, for the comfort and ease of our patients, we also provide some procedures within one of our community practices.

All our interventional Radiologists have received fellowship training in the field of interventional radiology and are happy to answer any questions about specific cases.

Below we have provided a comprehensive list of all the interventional studies we perform.  Should you not find the study you’re looking for please talk to one of our specialist Radiologists who will be happy to help.
