Diagnostic intervention consists of image-guided techniques to acquire samples from tissues and deep organs in the body, using extremely thin, specialised needles. At Star Imaging, we have trained experts performing these procedures to help clinicians arrive at a more conclusive diagnosis and further suggest the best treatment course to their patients. The elective procedures are done in the presence of an anaesthetists to ensure better patient safety. These procedures are minimally invasive with no need for skin incisions. This means they can easily be performed in the OPD itself, without requiring the patient to check-in. Moreover, the procedures are carried out under local anaesthesia, with minimal or almost zero post-procedure pain; maximising overall comfort for the patient.
Star Imaging’s state-of-the-art multi-slice CT technology and excellent Ultrasound machines, coupled with super-specialised experts in this field, enable the precise localisation of the needle to get an adequate tissue sample that can be reviewed by the pathologists.
In addition, therapeutic
non-vascular interventions, such as drainage of abscesses, are also carried out at Star Imaging. These minimally invasive procedures avoid the need for surgery and allow patients to benefit from a shorter hospital stay and a quick recovery.
