Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology made relentless progress in last few decades.  Today its impact can be felt in every field when patients need to be treated minimally or less invasively.

AMRI Hospitals, Dhakuria is way ahead of others in the sphere of Interventional Radiology for its outstanding team of doctors, and the most advanced and unique imaging facilities like 1.5 Tesla MRI, high end CT Scan, Digital Cath lab and Modular OT to name a few. At AMRI Dhakuria a wide range of most advanced Interventional Radiology services  are available 24x7.

Diagnostic  Angiography and DSA

  • A wide range of advanced diagnostic radiology services like cerebral, spinal, mesenteric, pulmonary, visceral or peripheral angiography.

  • Most advanced expertise for embolisation for vascular malformations like Arterio- venous malformations of any organ system like cerebral, pulmonary, visceral, spinal or gastrointestinal tract.

PTBD and Bilary Stenting

  • Highly effective option when regular ERCP cannot be carried out in cases of obstructive jaundice/Cholangitis or post operative patients.
  • Benign strictures and biliary clearing procedures are also available.
  • Similarly PCN and antegrade ureteric stenting can be done for cases of Obstructive Uropathy.

Liver Cancer

  • Shorter recovery period.

Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty

  • Most affective in patients with osteoporotic fractures and in patients with metastasis, specially as pain relief procedure.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

  • RFA of solid tumors of  different  organs is now a most advanced method of treatment .
  • Only RFA is the most effective treatment option for Osteoid Osteoma.

RFA of  Varicose Veins

  • An outstanding edge over LASER treatment with lesser complications. Along with varicosity stripping and selentherapy. Complete solution provided in a single sitting.
