Without a Scalpel Day
“no surgery, no stitches,
no scars“

Hear from your peers on the evolution of interventional radiology

Since Charles Dotter performed the very first angioplasty in 1964, the practice of Interventional Radiology has evolved significantly.

The ability to shrink or even eradicate a tumor by delivering a chemotherapeutic agent directly to the targeted area using a small catheter tube and image guidance is a notion the Interventionists of the 1960s would have most probably considered unthinkable.

Hence the celebration of the Without a Scalpel Day on January 16th every year, to recognize the opportunities to treat a disease without a scalpel.

Beyond diagnostic medical imaging, Guerbet accelerates its expansion in the field of interventional radiology. We aim to provide the interventional medical community with innovative image-guided solutions to help physicians advance their patient's treatments and outcomes.
