The use of interventional radiology (IR) in the treatment of pediatric solid tumors has markedly increased over the last three decades. However, data on effectiveness of IR-techniques, such as embolization/ablation, are scarce. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, we examined the outcomes of IR-procedures in the treatment of solid tumors in children.

Minimally invasive procedures, diagnostic or therapeutic, performed within the BLOOD VESSELS. They may be perfomed via ANGIOSCOPY; INTERVENTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; INTERVENTIONAL RADIOGRAPHY; or INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
Subspecialty of radiology that combines organ system radiography, catheter techniques and sectional imaging.
Minimally invasive procedures guided with the aid of magnetic resonance imaging to visualize tissue structures.
An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.

It does not include materials dissolved in domestic sewage, irrigation return flows, or industrial discharges.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
