Diagnostic interventional radiography allows to properly diagnose illness and body conditions and prescribe further medical treatment. This is done by injection of an image contrast agent into a blood vessel or a duct. It is also used for image-guided biopsy of tumors. Common diagnostic interventional radiography used is angiography, biopsy, and cholangiography.
Interventional radiography is used for treatments and procedures such as angioplasty, placing of medical devices such as stents, foreign body retrieval, and even fracture repair. With interventional radiography, we can target or focus on the exact area of illness and offer an effective way to treat many health issues by avoiding major open surgeries. Some of the problems in pets that can be treated by interventional radiography are tracheal collapse and various cardiac conditions without performing invasive surgery.
