Abstract

Interventional radiologists are physicians who specialize in minimally invasive targeted therapies, offering the most in-depth knowledge of the less invasive therapies that are available and diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. Interventional radiologists offer treatments for hepatobiliary diseases without significant side effects or damage to the adjacent normal tissue. We briefly introduce some of the interventional procedures in gastroenterology.
