Cardiovascular problems can be Treated Effectively by Interventional Radiology
Cardiovascular system is a composition of circulatory networks which distributes blood. Human body, as other vertebrates, has a closed cardiovascular system in which blood never leaves the network of arteries, veins and capillaries. Interventional radiology provides the best solution for many cardiovascular problems. The technology employed under interventional radiology helps to find minimally invasive treatments through image guidance.
The cardiovascular interventional radiology takes high-quality imaging equipments to offer many new treatment options. The diagnosis procedures are typically guided by x-ray fluoroscopy, computed tomography or ultrasound. The IR images work like road maps that allow technicians and interventional radiologists to guide needles or other tiny instruments (catheters) through the body to the areas of damaged cells. In this way physicians can find a larger assistant to place these instruments in the affected part of the cardiovascular system. This method has proved to be the fruitful to cure some perilous diseases including cancer.
Fluoroscopy and computed tomography use ionizing radiation to find fast and geometrically accurate diagnosis. The magnetic resonance imaging technique is also capable to provide superior tissue contrast through the specialized instrument. The Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) is a professional body that comprises interventional radiologists from Europe and overseas. This organization publishes a bimonthly medical journal entitled Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (CVIR) as well as other publications including newsletters and manuals. This body is an independent non-profit foundation, promoting research and education in the field of cardiovascular and interventional radiology. Its purpose is to fund education, clinical research, basic science and technical assistance for the development of interventional radiology.
