Since its development as a sub-speciality within radiology, Interventional Radiology (IR) has played an increasingly important role in caring for the patient with cancer. This role begins with initial diagnosis of cancer and involvement now extends into minimally invasive treatment of malignancy alone or in combination with other treatment modalities. IR has established a very important role in the management of complications incurred during many oncological treatments. This chapter provides an updated overview of the scope of IR in the management of the oncology patient.
