About Interventional Radiology
Interventional radiology, also sometimes known as surgical radiology, is a subspecialty of the radiological area of medicine. It involves a wide range of procedures that utilize imaging techniques for the purpose of diagnosing and treating various conditions. Imaging techniques include ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Gastrointestinal interventional radiology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of a range of gastrointestinal conditions. These procedures are performed in a minimally invasive manner and offer a better patient experience as compared to conservative surgical options.

Biliary proceduresInterventional biliary procedures are minimally invasive surgical procedures that are done to remove benign obstructions such as blockages or narrowing and injury of the bile ducts. Common biliary procedures include biliary stenting, Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTCD) and Biliary stone extraction.
ColonoscopyColonoscopy is a procedure that allows your gastroenterologist to visualize the insides of your colon and rectum. This procedure is done with the help of a thin, lighted tube called the colonoscope that has a tiny camera attached at one of its ends.
Interventional EndoscopyEndoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure to visualize and examine the digestive tract and nearby organs like the pancreas and liver. It is a precise and safe procedure that allows gastroenterologists to better understand your condition and offer appropriate treatments.
ERCPEndoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) allows gastroenterologists to diagnose and treat conditions in the liver, gallbladder, pancreas and bile ducts. This technique involves a combination of endoscopy and X-rays. We offer precision-driven ERCP procedures for a detailed diagnosis and treatment.
FluoroscopyFluoroscopy is a real-time X-ray procedure that uses barium-based contrast material to produce images of the upper gastrointestinal tract. This procedure can help in the diagnosis of a variety of GI conditions including acid reflux and blood in the stool.
