Interventional radiology treats disorders in nearly every organ of the body – except for the brain and heart – via minimally invasive, image-guided therapies. The procedures are manifold and range from revascularization of occluded vessels and shaping new vessel beds such as in AAA or TIPSS procedures to occlusion of blood flow, e.g. in tumor embolization or endoleak repair. Especially interventional oncology procedures, the area of highest growth, show overwhelming progress in therapies closely related to innovations in ablation devices and embolization material.
We at Siemens are committed to providing excellent 2D and 3D imaging of patient anatomy and function, as well as of interventional instruments at the lowest reasonable dose in a world of continuous miniaturization of devices. We support the interventional radiologist in keeping pace with procedures that are becoming increasingly complicated. Our tools assist in complex clinical workflows enabling treatment planning and guidance as well as verification of treatment results, making procedures safer and quicker.
