Interventional radiology (IR), also known as vascular and interventional radiology (VIR) or surgical radiology is an independent medical specialty. This provides minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment of diseases in every organ system. In this department, ultrasound-guided thyroid biopsy, lymph node biopsy, breast biopsy, liver biopsy and ct- guided lung biopsy are performed. Percutaneous apse and acide drainage, pleural effusion drainage can be realized for therapeutic purpose.
Apart from these all diagnostic angiography treatments can be realized. Ultrasound-guided breast biopsy is performed at stereotactic localization and follow-up of breast lesions. This method has become a common practice in the diagnosis of breast abnormalities. Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography and external biliary drainage can be carried out at hepatitis related with the cancer. All of the treatments are performed under the local anesthesia. Only at several treatments small incision can be done if necessary.
