Image Guided Therapy
Image-Guided Therapy (IGT) is a state-of-the-art facility that was specially designed to house the growing interventional radiology service, and to facilitate many other disciplines to work together to perform image-guided treatments. Several procedures can now be performed safely in one place, on the same day, under one anaesthetic often resulting in a shorter hospital stay to the benefit of the patient.
IGT is a division of the Department of Diagnostic Imaging (DI), under the leadership of the Radiologist-in-Chief, Dr. Manohar Shroff and the Director of Diagnostic Imaging and Vascular Access, Ellen Charkot.
IGT is a member of the Centre for Image-Guided Care (CIGC) and is utilized as the main platform for delivering clinical care through this Centre.
