Interventional Procedures

Interventional procedures are performed for various reasons including pain management and screening for disease. The imaging we use to guide these procedures include ultrasound, CT and MRI.

Interventional work can be complex and will require one of our specially trained Radiologist doctors to attend as it involves minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment, often using the injection of drugs or the removal of tissue.
