Thanks to the wonderful generosity of the Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity, we were able to invest in new Interventional Radiology and Bi-Plane technology at our Children’s Hospital.

Interventional radiology refers to a range of techniques which rely on image guidance, using x-rays, ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging to guide equipment into parts of the body that can’t usually be reached without an open operation.

Once in place, this equipment can be used to precisely deliver a range of interventions and treatments. It reaches the source of a medical problem through blood vessels or directly through a tiny incision in the skin to deliver a precise, targeted treatment.

Ultimately, Interventional Radiology and Bi-Plane technology holds the key to less risk, less pain and quicker recovery for our young patients.

Clive sadly passed away earlier this year, but thanks to his generosity he has left a legacy that will improve the care of thousands of poorly children for years to come.
