Interventional Radiology is a well-established minimally invasive clinical sub-specialty in radiology. It encompasses diagnostic and therapeutic procedures done under image guidance utilizing the latest of medical technologies. Procedures done cut across all medical disciplines and are integral in the day to day care of most patients. The performance of these procedures has associated responsibilities, impacts patient outcomes and has medico-legal consequences.
