Interventional Procedures Guidance

An interventional procedure is used for diagnosis or for treatment. It involves:

  • making a cut or a hole to gain access to the inside of a patient's body - For example, carrying out an operation or inserting a tube into a blood vessel.
  • gaining access to a body cavity without cutting - For example, carrying out treatment inside the stomach using an instrument inserted via the mouth.
  • using electromagnetic radiation - For example, using a laser to treat eye problems.
