Bulk Billed Interventional Radiology Services Adelaide

Interventional Radiology

At Healthcare Imaging Services, we provide a wide range of interventional procedures. Our experienced Radiologists (doctors) will use minimal invasive techniques using image guidance such as CT and ultrasound to help manage pain, remove fluid (drainage/aspiration) or to take a sample of tissue (biopsy).

How long will it take?

The duration of the procedure usually depends on the interventional request.

Routine Ultrasound injections usually take 10-15 minutes.

Routine CT injections usually take 15-20 minutes.

Other interventional procedures such as biopsies can take longer. This will be confirmed at the time of the booking alongside any other specific instructions by our booking staff.

Preparation

Prior to the procedure, you will be asked to remove any jewellery, or metallic accessories as these can interfere with the procedure. You may also be asked to wear a gown.

 

Risk 

At Healthcare Imaging Services, we use modern digital equipment for our interventional procedures. 

All interventional procedures are implemented with sterile protocols to reduce the risk of bleeding and infection. 

Any further risks from the procedure will be discussed with you by our Radiologist at the time of the procedure. 

Cost

At Healthcare Imaging Services we offer a bulk billing service if you have a medicare card.
