Prostate artery embolization is a new procedure we offer. Uterine artery embolization for fibroids is also performed routinely. Chyle (lymph) leak is a rare and difficult-to-treat disease which affects both adults and children. Our department is a pioneer in treatment of this disease.

The department experience over the last two decades has been published in several national and international journals. We have trained many young interventional radiologists who now offer these services in other parts of the country.
Interventional Radiology is a subspecialty of Radiology which deals with minimally invasive procedures that are performed under image guidance. These procedures can be diagnostic or therapeutic and are carried out with the help of ultrasound fluoroscopic and CT equipment.
