Pediatric interventions

Pediatric interventional radiology (IR) is a medical field that specializes in minimally invasive diagnostic or therapeutic procedures using imaging guidance, in children. Interventional radiology suites for minimally invasive studies such as catheter-based angiography and fluoroscopy. IR can also use other imaging guidance such as ultrasound, CT and MRI to precisely deliver medication to an area of the body or to perform minimally invasive procedures rather than surgery. These types of procedures can reduce complications, reduce the risk of infection, require a shorter hospital stay and result in faster recuperation.

A few examples of pediatric interventional procedures include:

Guiding instruments into the tissue to take a sample in order to diagnose infection or tumor (biopsy or aspiration)

Placing a tube into a blood vessel, organ or fluid collection to remove or replace fluids (venous access, -ostomy tube or drainage)

Guiding small instruments into the body to directly deliver materials (such as medications, radiofrequency energy or laser) to destroy cancer or other abnormal tissues without harming the healthy tissues, by treating at the source of the disease (chemoembolization, sclerotherapy or ablation).
