CANCER

What is Interventional Oncology?

 

In the treatment of cancer and cancer-related disorders, interventional oncology is considered as one of four pillars of a multidisciplinary team approach. Other therapies involve medical, surgical and radiation oncology.

​Interventional oncology procedures offer both minimally invasive diagnosis and targeted cancer treatment. Image guidance (Fluoroscopy/ DSA, CT or USG) is used in combination with the most recent innovations available to treat cancerous tumours while minimizing possible damage to other body organs.

Most patients who undergo these procedures are either outpatients or require a hospital stay for a night. For cancer treatment, some of these therapies are regional, and they cover various areas of the liver with chemoembolization or radioembolization. Others options are best known as local, as when the radiofrequency ablation (heating) is used to treat focal lesions in the kidney, liver, lung and bone.

Such techniques are usually reserved for patients whose cancer can't be removed surgically or treated efficiently with systemic chemotherapy. They are also used frequently in combination with other therapies that additional members of the cancer team have.
