We provide treatment for patients using different types of radiological imaging such as fluoroscopy (live Xray), MRIs, CT scans and ultrasounds. This lets us deliver precise, targeted treatment.
Clinical service overview
Interventional Radiology is a growing field in medicine. This clinic is designed for patients who require specialised interventional procedures using imaging technology.
Patients will see a specialist radiologist who will discuss the procedure in detail. This also provides the opportunity for a thorough medical assessment, to ensure the patient receives the appropriate work-up before the procedure, such as blood tests or other imaging.
If the procedure is to be performed under a general anaesthetic the patient may be required to attend a pre – anaesthetic assesment clinic which the doctor will refer them to.
The patient may also meet our Interventional Radiology Nursing Coordinator who will be coordinating your procedure.
