What to expect: Interventional radiology
The interventional radiology (IR) room has several kinds of cameras to help the doctors or technologists see the inside of your body. Sometimes more than one kind of camera is used, and sometimes only one is needed.
The cameras take pictures of a certain part of your body while you lay on a bed. The staff taking your pictures will wear special aprons, hats and masks while taking your pictures. You may get medicine to make you sleep during your pictures.
