In interventional radiology (commonly known as IR), clinicians employ diagnostic imaging to guide minimally invasive surgeries that diagnose, treat, and cure a wide range of illnesses. Fluoroscopy, MRI, CT, and ultrasound are some of the imaging modalities employed.

Patients who would otherwise require standard open surgery benefit from interventional radiology since it decreases expense, recovery time, discomfort, and danger. As a result, IR has become the predominant method for treating a wide range of disorders. The therapies that IR can efficiently conduct are always developing and expanding.
Some examples of IR procedures are:
