Interventional Radiology is a sub specialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance. Some of these procedures are done for purely diagnostic purposes (for example, Angiography), while others are done for treatment purposes (for example, Embolization). Images are used to direct these procedures, which are usually done with needles or other tiny instruments like small tubes called catheters. This images are like a map that allow the Radiologist the guide these instruments through the body to the area.
