Our Services: Interventional Radiology
Interventional radiology (IR)
Australian Radiology Clinics specialises in interventional radiology. This is where the images produced by ultrasound or a CT scan are used in the performance of highly targeted interventional medical procedures. These procedures are minimally invasive, such as administering spinal and joint injections to reduce inflammation and manage pain, or taking tissue biopsies.
Interventional radiology is available at all three of our Adelaide radiology clinics; however, the total costs are not covered by bulk billing when injections are required. In this case, there is a small gap payment (unless you have a government issued concession card). Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to find out more.
Interventional ultrasound procedures
Ultrasound can also be used to assist in the performance of minimally invasive interventional medical procedures. These include administering joint injections, fine needle aspiration, or taking biopsies of tissues or bone.
Although our ultrasound examinations are bulk billed, when injections are also required there is a small gap, unless you hold a current government issued concession card.
