What does a radiologist do?

Interventional radiologists don’t use traditional methods for diagnosing and treating patients. Instead, they utilise image-guided procedures for painless and more viable treatments. These experts work with other specialists and surgeons to ensure complete patient care with modern-day non-invasive techniques.

What question should you ask a radiologist?

You can discuss certain questions with an interventional radiologist. The most common ones are why you need interventional radiology, how it can help with your health problems, whether surgery is required, what type of treatments you offer, and how long it will take for recovery.

What are the most common types of conditions that radiologists treat?

The most common conditions that interventional radiologists treat are bone and joint fractures or arthritis, brain and spinal conditions, heart and blood vessel problems, cancer or tumours, infections, critical uterus problems, liver diseases, and chronic pain. These conditions are treated through image-guided, painless procedures.

When should I consider seeing a radiologist?

How should I prepare for my first visit to a radiologist?

When visiting interventional radiologists for the first time, you can list necessary questions or queries to discuss. Also, take all necessary health documents, past treatment records, and prescriptions along with you to discuss your health problems.

How does a radiologist decide on a treatment plan?

Interventional radiologists and other necessary doctors work collaboratively to monitor patients' health conditions and analyse several reports or tests. Based on image-guided diagnosis, they prepare a treatment plan that is noninvasive and less painful, ensuring quick recovery of the patients.

Will a radiologist help manage side effects during treatment?

While these experts aren’t directly involved in the treatment, they collaborate with other experts to neutralise patients' problems, such as side effects, through image-guided procedures. Our interventional radiologist in Kottakkal is well aware of critical side effects and offers multiple treatment options.

How do radiologists decide if surgery is necessary?

Interventional radiologists don’t usually decide on surgery as they work with other doctors on image-guided diagnosis and treatments.
