Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology procedures include imaging-guided biopsies to obtain samples for cytologic or pathologic testing.

  • We use the latest radiological equipments to obtain ultra clear digital photo

  • Latest radiology technology in interventional examinations

  • The possibility of printing x-ray images on a CD.

  • A PT/INR/PTT blood test are required

  • The physician should see the x-rays and the case to indicate whether or not the examination can be performed.

CT scan

CT scan

What is a computerized tomography CT scan?

  • It is a method for examining the body that was discovered in 1973 by a British scientist and began to be applied in the field of medicine on a large scale starting in 1975. This scientist was awarded the Nobel Prize for this invention.

  • The examination differs from traditional x-rays in the possibility of imaging the body through successive horizontal sections, through which a superior ability to distinguish between different types of soft tissues such as the liver, muscles, spleen, kidneys...etc., which was not available before. The thickness of the single section ranges from 1 millimeter to 10 millimeters. But the amount of radiation used in a CT scan is more than what is required by conventional imaging. Therefore, it is preferable to do a CT scan after consulting a doctor.

The device consists of three main parts:

Computer unit:

  • It is the regulator of all operations.

  • Control unit:

  • It controls all the device operations and it is in a separate room.

GANTRY unit:

  • It is the part that contains the X-ray source. It has an opening with a diameter of 70 cm that allows the patient to enter through it by means of a bed that moves distances determined according to the type of examination

Preparation Instructions

  • A CT scan preparation is easier than a conventional X-ray.

Abdominal and pelvic examination:

  • Fasting from food for at least 3-4 hours before the examination.

  • It is preferable to drink fluids. You can drink tea and coffee but soft drinks and dairy are banned.

Other examinations that not require any preparation:

  • Brain.

  • Skull base

  • Ear and throat

  • Neck.

  • Paranasal sinuses.

  • Chest.

  • Spine

  • lower limbs

  • Joints.

  • Angiography

  • The examination does not require any preparation.

How long does the examination take on the device?

  • It ranges between 5 and 15 minutes, according to the part to be tested.

  • The patient should be completely still during the imaging, because any sudden or continuous movement may leads to poor image quality. Please cooperate with the operator of the device to refrain from breathing during filming in cases of abdominal and lung examination, knowing that this period does not exceed five seconds each time.

Warnings regarding the computerized CT scan:

  • Allergy against iodine, penicillin, and asthmatic patient in this case doctor must inform to determine the dose and type of dye that will be injected into the vein, as well as anti-allergic drugs.

Metal parts:

  • (Dental fillings - metal screws) do not affect if they are far from the imaging field, but if they are included, their medical impact on the image is avoided as much as possible.

  • Weight more than 180 kg

  • Involuntary movement informing the doctor to inject the patient with sleeping medication
