The Friends of Worthing Hospitals have announced the start of a new appeal to raise £385,000 to provide the hospital with Interventional Radiology equipment.

Interventional radiology has a number of benefits for patients. The Imaging Techniques allow accurate diagnosis and treatment using cutting edge equipment.

Minimally invasive procedures are performed through a small nick in the skin, minimizing the patient’s discomfort and recovery time. As interventional procedures tend to require only local anesthesia, hospital stays are very short, with patients frequently going home the day the procedure is performed. In addition, the techniques can be used in very sick patients who are unfit for surgery.

Patients who undergo IR procedures experience less pain during and after the procedure than patients undergoing surgical procedures. Post-procedural care is provided along with follow up imaging to confirm if the treatment has been successful.
