INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY

The medical procedures performed in the Department of Clinical - Interventional Radiology from interventional radiologists are diagnostic and therapeutic.  They mostly concern benign and malignant conditions that can be treated with minimally invasive and highly targeted therapies. They are performed with local anesthesia under direct fluoroscopic monitoring, after a transdermal puncture, and they require a highly experienced and skilled medical team.

One of the most important procedures is the percutaneous biopsy under the direction of the CT scanner, in order to collect material for the cytological and the histological examination in case of suspicious findings, in order to achieve an accurate diagnosis and determine the suitable treatment. Percutaneous biopsy is a fast and safe technique with a high degree of sensitivity in the diagnosis of malignant tumors.

In the Department of Clinical - Interventional Radiology the following procedures are performed:

  • Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures (biopsy, vertebroplasty), drainage of abscess collection and bile vessels, angioplasty of the bile pore with the insertion of a stent, intra-arterial embolization. 
  • Thermal cautery with RF Ablation and Microwave Ablation. 
  • Embolization of tumor vessels.
  • Chemoembolization of liver and lungs.
  • Intra-arterial chemotherapy of abdominal organs and lungs.
  •  Drainage of abscess collection and bile vessels, and angioplasty of the bile pore with the insertion of a stent.
