Abstract

Abstract The authors review the various interventional radiology techniques currently used in 1996 by a Medico-Radio-Surgical team. CT guided needle biopsy has an important place in the diagnostic approach to parenchymal as well as mediastinal tumours. But CT guidance allows also routine drainage of thoracic collections and sometimes thoracic sympatholysis. Superior vena cava and tracheobronchial stenting are palliative treatments as the percutaneous aspergilloma treatment. Embolization of bronchial and thoracic systemic arteries are also palliative buot effective therapeutic procedures as well as vasoocclusion for arterio-venous fistulae.
