Interventional radiologists use imaging technology and a thin needle to safely drain infected fluid out of wounds or abscesses in the body. The fluid can be studied in a lab to diagnose the type of infection you have.
The University of Miami Health System interventional radiologists perform drainages to improve healing. These procedures cause little discomfort, but they may help relieve some symptoms of your infection.
