Interventional Radiology:. Establishing vascular access to allow chemotherapy to be given. The insertion of feeding tubes into the stomach and small bowel. Drainage of fluid collections using image guidance including long term drainage tubes to allow patients to manage their symptoms at home. Insertion of stents to re-open blocked tubes within the body( eg oesophagus, bile ducts, ureters, large veins). Biopsy of lesions to establish diagnosis (including transjugular biopsy).
