Advances in Diagnostic Interventional Radiography


Recently, medical science landscape has advanced rapidly, and new interventional techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases have been so popular. Interventional radiology is a safe, less invasive therapy where a person can have speed recovery time compared with open surgery Recent advanced diagnostics in IR:

  • Treatment of all vascular problems
  •  Angiogram, Angioplasty
  •  Biopsies for tumors across the body near any organ in specific
  •  Drainage of fluid collections
  •  Abscesses, kidneys and Gallbladder disorders
  •  Embolization
  •  To stop bleeding or treat tumour, etc.
  •  Treatment of infertility
  •  Insertion of feeding tubes
  •  Treatment of liver tumour

A variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used to diagnose or treat diseases. Interventional radiology is the performance of usually minimally invasive medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies such as those mentioned above.

The modern practice of radiology involves several different healthcare professions working as a team. The radiologist is a medical doctor who has completed the appropriate post-graduate training and interprets medical images, communicates these findings to other physicians by means of a report or verbally, and uses imaging to perform minimally invasive medical procedures. The nurse is involved in the care of patients before and after imaging or procedures, including administration of medications, monitoring of vital signs and monitoring of sedated patients.[2] The radiographer, also known as a "radiologic technologist" in some countries such as the United States, is a specially trained healthcare professional that uses sophisticated technology and positioning techniques to produce medical images for the radiologist to interpret. Depending on the individual's training and country of practice, the radiographer may specialize in one of the above-mentioned imaging modalities or have expanded roles in image reporting.

Interventional Radiology Journal has one of the fastest turnaround times of any medical journal in the world. Generally peer review is complete within 2-3 weeks and the editor’s decision within 2-7 days of this. It is therefore very rare to have to wait more than 4 weeks for a final decision.

Its mission is to improve patient care by educating interventionalists on the latest techniques in catheter-based therapies from experts in the field.
