Interventional radiology, having its origin in coronary angiograms of the 1950’s and 1960’s, consist of minimally invasive procedures for both diagnostic and therapeutic (treatment) purposes. These procedures can replace certain surgeries as it has faster recuperation than with surgery, usually no hospital admission required (done as an outpatient), uses local anesthetic instead of general anesthesia and is safe and effective. More recently, interventional radiology techniques have been applied to head and neck region and its implications in this region are continuing to expand. This article reviews the range of applications of interventional radiology in the extra-cranial head and neck.
