“Uterine Fibroid (without removing uterus), enlarged prostate (without catheter, day care), varicose vein(under local anesthesia, join work next day)), thyroid nodule (without neck scar), liver cancer (without surgery), peripheral arterial diseases (angioplasty) and many more.”
Indian Society of Vascular & Interventional Radiology – Karnataka State Chapter (ISVIR KAR) today launched its two day workshop CIRCON – 2023 – Clinical Interventional Radiology Conference 2023, at the Radisson Blu Atria, 1, Palace Rd, Ambedkar Veedhi, Bengaluru. This workshop introduces the latest technology in the field of Vascular & Interventional Radiology to professionals and students.
“Interventional Radiology” (IR) is a super-specialty amongst medical specialties. This is a specialised field in radiology where image guidance, such as X-rays, Ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are used to perform a wide range of minimally invasive procedures, they are advanced treatment mainly for Uterine Fibroid (without removing uterus), enlarged prostate (without catheter, day care), varicose vein(under local anesthesia), thyroid nodule (without neck scar), liver cancer (without surgery), peripheral arterial diseases (angioplasty) and many more.
Speaking on the occasion Dr Reddi Prasad – President, ISVIR KAR said “Interventional Radiology is an innovative and modern method in treating both benign disease and cancer, through minimal access. Hence we play a central role in managing all patients. With the technological advances, innovations and the currently available armamentarium; interventional radiology procedures have become the ﬁrst option in treating many conditions. IRs perform procedures through a tiny incision and this is termed as “pin-hole’’ as opposed to key hole or open surgery”.
Dr Rohit Madhurkar – Secretary, ISVIR KAR explained that “Interventional Radiology is a boon to the modern healthcare system with cutting edge, most advanced techniques to treat common health problems in a simple way. Signiﬁcant advantages for the patients are that there is no scar, no blood loss, less painful, infections are rare, early discharge and quicker resumption to routine activities. There is a lot of scope for Interventional Radiology in patient management and the future is bright”.
Dr Vidya Bhargavi – Treasurer, ISVIR KAR also felt that “Interventional radiology has revolutionized the cancer care from diagnostic to targeted therapies providing the best possible quality of life”.
Interventional radiologists (IRs) are specialist doctors who are extensively trained in both diagnostic and interventional radiology. They have expertise in interpreting medical images, diagnosing and treating various types of medical conditions, and performing a wide range of IR procedures. IRs caters to all medical specialties and performs therapeutic procedures on almost all organs of the body; hence play a central role in patient management.
