Patient Information Leaflets


This set of patient information leaflets is prepared by the Hong Kong Society of Interventional Radiology Ltd. These leaflets do not provide information on different alternative treatments to a specific disease or compare them. The main aim is to explain to the patients the procedure and its risk once an interventional radiology treatment or investigation is considered or chosen.


You are most welcome to download the leaflets and distribute these to the patients. You may also modify the leaflets to suit your local clinical setting. We would most appreciate it if you could acknowledge us in your printout.


Please read the disclaimer before using it.
