The Department of Interventional Radiology at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital conducts minimally invasive procedures with the aid of advanced image guidance systems. Our cath lab is truly state-of-the-art and is equipped with the GE Innova IGS 630 biplane interventional radiology imaging cath lab system for interventional imaging and diagnostic imaging. The IGS 630 offers exceptional electrophysiology (EP) support with high image quality, optimisation of doses with dedicated EP dose protocols, low dose fluoroscopy, in built cone beam CT, 3D Spin, Road map, and so on. This gives our Interventional Radiologists in Coimbatore a huge edge in diagnosing and treating complex vascular diseases from head to toe. The low levels of radiation make it perfect as a diagnostic system for children too.

For patients, the benefits of these advanced minimally invasive techniques and the use of such technology are manifold. Tiny pinhole openings ensure minimal loss of blood, less risk and short recovery times. The ever-present risk which open surgery poses and the chances of infection are reduced. In addition the patient suffers little to no pain and there is no surgical scar, thereby ensuring greater emotional wellbeing of the patient in the long term. Hospital stays are reduced by half or more while the treatment itself is equally or more efficacious.
