Interventional Oncologists play a critical role as part of the Cancer team in the diagnosis
and treatment of cancer and cancer-related problems using targeted minimally invasive
procedures performed under image guidance. They collaborate actively with the medical,
surgical and radiation oncology in tumour board discussion to develop a personalized
treatment plan for patients. Interventional radiology is a super-speciality branch of Radio-
diagnosis which encompasses various diagnostic and therapeutic options. Interventional
Radiology refers to a range of techniques which rely on the use of radiological image
guidance to precisely target therapy. Interventional oncology is a subspecialty field of
interventional radiology that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and cancer-
related problems using targeted minimally invasive procedures performed under image
The specialist uses CT image-guidance to perform minimally-invasive techniques for specific
cancer and organs such as liver, lungs, etc and ideally for patients with cancers that cannot
be surgically removed or effectively treated with systemic chemotherapy. These procedures
are also frequently used in combination as a part of curative or palliative therapy resulting in
prolonged survival and improved quality of life for patients. At Cytecare, our Interventional
Oncologists are well recognised in their field and have the most experience in the region in
performing catheter-based procedures for cancer. Most procedures are either outpatient or
require an overnight stay in the hospital with minimal recovery time.
It is important to recognize that the Interventional treatment is usually one of several
treatment options available and each case is considered on its own merits. Well recognized
advantages of these minimally invasive techniques include reduced risks, shorter hospital
stays, lower costs, greater comfort, quicker convalesence and return to work.
These Image guided techniques are used for both diagnosing and treating cancers affecting
the Liver, Hepatobiliary system, kidneys, lungs, prostrate and other internal organ cancers.
