Interventional Procedures

At Alfred Imaging we offer comprehensive diagnostic interventional services performed by highly skilled tertiary hospital trained Radiologists.

Interventional Radiology services available at Alfred Imaging include:

  • Joint Injections – a steroid and local anaesthetic is injected into a sore joint for pain relief
  • Nerve Blocks – a steroid and local anaesthetic is injected next to certain nerve groups for pain relief
  • Biopsies – tissue samples are taken and sent to pathology for diagnosis
  • Drainages – excess fluid that should not be present is drained from the body
  • Vascular access lines and port placement – for example, a PICC line, to administer medications

Our interventional radiology specialists use imaging guidance to ensure precise needle placement for all procedures.

As a general rule, due to necessary planning, an appointment is required for interventional procedures. A referral from a medial practitioner is necessary for all types of interventional radiology.

Interventional procedures require preparation and after-care. At Alfred Imaging specific instructions will be given when you book your appointment and at the time of your consultation with your attending interventional Radiologist.
