Interventional and Vascular Therapeutics

Kinetic: Interventional and Vascular Therapeutics is a new Interventional Radiology group on the Gold Coast in Queensland. At Kinetic we specialise in image-guided minimally-invasive procedures, that target a wide range of medical conditions, many that previously required open surgery.  Unlike our diagnostic radiology colleagues, we don't report x-rays, CTs or MRIs here!  Interventional Radiology is a hands on specialty, much closer aligned to surgery than radiology.  To better understand exactly what an Interventional Radiologist actually is, please refer to our FAQ page
