Pediatric Interventional Radiologist
Interventional radiology (IR) doctors use pictures or images to help them reach certain parts of the body that can’t be seen from the outside. IR doctors use these images of the inside of the body as road maps to guide instruments through the body to those hard-to-reach areas. These procedures are usually done with needles or other tiny instruments, such as small catheters or tubes. - See more at: http://www.chp.edu/our-services/radiology/patient-procedures/pediatric-interventional-radiology#sthash.iApExrx7.dpuf
