Abstract

Interventional Radiology is a technique based medical specialty, using allavailable imaging modalities (fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance, angiography) for guidance of interventional techniques for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Actual, percutaneous transthoracic needle biopsy includes core needle biopsy besides fine needle aspiration. Any pleural, pulmonary or mediastinal fluid or gas collection is amenable to percutaneous pulmonary catheter drainage. Treatment of haemoptysis of the bronchial artery or pulmonary artery origin, transcatheter embolization of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations and pseudoaneurysms, angioplasty and stenting of the superior vena caval systemand percutaneous foreign body retrieval are well established routine procedures, precluding unnecessary surgery. These techniques are safe and effective in experienced hands. Computed tomography is helpful in pre- and postoperative imaging of patients being considered for endobronchial stenting. Many procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis, thus increasing the cost-effectiveness of radiologically guided interventions in the thorax.
