The Department of Interventional Radiology at KLES Dr Prabhakar Kore Hospital & MRC utilizes advanced, minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. The range of diseases and organs amenable to image-guided therapeutic and diagnostic procedures are extensive and constantly evolving, and include vascular, gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, genitourinary, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, and, the central nervous system.

Using the least invasive techniques currently available in order to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes; these procedures are less painful with less recovery time , reduced hospital stay as in comparison to open surgery.
