radtechpro Interventional Radiology; some tools of the trade. Who can identify these devices? Hint: these are on the table for thrombectomy of dialysis access. #Interventional #Radiology #Xray 5d
  •   radtechpro What most people don't know is there are so many sub-specialties you can go into as an RT. Xray is really just the jumping off point. 5d
  •   radtechpro I do miss diagnostic xray, though. 5d
  •   mohammed_aja May give me the website that tech about special procedures and items used caused I'm newly in interventional Radiology 5d
  •   residenterdoc @radtechpro thank you for elaborating. I would never have gotten anywhere close to d answer. 😬😬 5d
  •   radtechpro If I find a website for you I will post @mohammed_aja 5d
  •   radtechpro No worries @residenterdoc 5d
  •   brittanylynne_o Didn't know you wanted specifics love this!! And there are perks to all of the sub specialties. I work in IR and CT but can't give up diagnostic. @radtechpro 5d
  •   radtechpro @brittanylynne_o Since no one posted what they all were I tried to explain them each for those who were interested... & that's awesome... I miss the action of the ER. 5d

jvirmedia Risk Factors of Pneumothorax after CT-Guided Coaxial Cutting Needle Lung Biopsy through Aerated versus Nonaerated Lung

Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Volume 25, Issue 8, Pages 1209–1217, August 2014

Image caption:
A 68-year-old woman presented with a lung nodule incidentally found in the left upper lobe. Line A is the tangent at the point of pleural entry of the needle. Line B is drawn perpendicular to it. The pleural-lesion angle (θ) is the angle between the actual needle route and line B. Needle path length is the length of aerated lung tissue penetrated. Lesion size is the maximum long-axis diameter of the lesion.

Conclusions:
When aerated lung was not traversed, lesion size and pleural-lesion angle were associated with pneumothorax, and when aerated lung was traversed, location and a transfissure approach were associated with pneumothorax.

jvirmedia Comparison of Sonographically Guided Percutaneous Sodium Tetradecyl Sulfate Injection with Ethanol Injection in the Treatment of Benign Nonfunctioning Thyroid Nodules

Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Volume 25, Issue 8, Pages 1218–1224, August 2014

Figure caption:
Ultrasound images obtained before (a, b) and 3 months after (c, d) percutaneous sclerotherapy with STS depicting solid transformation with size reduction of the cystic thyroid nodule (arrow). Conclusions:
Sonographically guided percutaneous ethanol and STS injections are not significantly different from each other in terms of the volume reduction achieved in benign nonfunctioning thyroid nodules.

jvirmedia Bacteriophage K Antimicrobial-Lock Technique for Treatment of Staphylococcus aureus Central Venous Catheter–Related Infection: A Leporine Model Efficacy Analysis

Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Articles in Press

Image Caption:
Intraoperative photograph of a female New Zealand White rabbit after insertion of the peel-away sheath (arrow) into the right internal jugular vein and interscapular subcutaneous tunneling of the 4.2-F catheter from the venotomy to the skin exit site (circle). Conclusions:
In a rabbit model, treatment of infected central venous catheters with a bacteriophage antimicrobial-lock technique significantly reduced bacterial colonization and biofilm presence. Our data represent a preliminary step toward use of bacteriophage therapy for prevention and treatment of central venous catheter–associated infection.

jvirmedia Portal Vein Embolization before Right Hepatectomy or Extended Right Hepatectomy Using Sodium Tetradecyl Sulfate Foam: Technique and Initial Results

Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Volume 25, Issue 7, Pages 1045–1053, July 2014

Image Caption:
(a) Digital subtraction angiogram obtained before the procedure demonstrates flow throughout the portal vein, including the segment III branch arising off the LPV (arrow). (b) Digital subtraction angiogram obtained after embolization demonstrates complete occlusion of the RPV and lack of flow within the previously visualized segment III branch (arrow) secondary to nontarget embolization.

Conclusion:
Preoperative PVE with STS foam is a safe and effective method to induce hypertrophy of the FLR.

jvirmedia Superselective Yttrium-90 Radioembolization for Hepatocellular Carcinoma Yields High Response Rates with Minimal Toxicity

Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Volume 25, Issue 7 , Pages 1067-1073, July 2014

Image caption:
A 60-year-old man with Child-Pugh B cirrhosis and a history of TIPS placement. (a) Axial contrast-enhanced CT image demonstrates a 3.2-cm HCC in segment VI (arrow). (b) Coronal CT reconstruction delineates the extent of tumor-associated portal venous thrombus (arrow). (c) Digital subtraction angiography of the celiac trunk demonstrates conventional hepatic arterial anatomy, with multiple branches off of the right hepatic artery. (d) Selective angiography of the segment VI branch of the right hepatic artery confirms tumor hypervascularity (arrow). C-arm CT (not shown) had been performed to facilitate detection of feeding arteries to the tumor. 90Y was infused from this microcatheter location. (e) After 90Y infusion, magnetic resonance imaging (contrast-enhanced T1-weighted fat-suppressed) performed at 1 month follow-up demonstrates complete necrosis of the targeted tumor, with expected surrounding inflammatory change. (f) Tumor necrosis is sustained on magnetic resonance imaging at 24 months follow-up.

Conclusions:
When performed in a segmental fashion, 90Y radioembolization demonstrates high response rates and low local tumor recurrence rates. Complete imaging response can be achieved in patients with locally aggressive disease. This study demonstrates no clinically significant hepatotoxicity, despite moderate liver dysfunction in many patients.

jvirmedia Percutaneous In Utero Thoracoamniotic Shunt Creation for Fetal Thoracic Abnormalities Leading to Nonimmune Hydrops

Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Volume 25, Issue 6 , Pages 889-894, June 2014

Image Caption:
Thoracoamniotic shunt creation. Fetal ultrasound image showing a sagittal oblique view of the fetal thorax. There is a large echogenic left chylous pleural effusion (black arrow). Under direct ultrasound guidance, an 18-gauge needle (black arrowhead) was percutaneously advanced via a transabdominal, transuterine approach into the chylothorax. The white arrow indicates a fetal lung, the white arrowhead indicates the uterus, and the dashed white arrow indicates amniotic fluid.

Conclusions:
A Seldinger-based percutaneous approach to draining fetal thoracic abnormalities is feasible and can allow for prolongation of pregnancy and antenatal lung development and ultimately result in fetal survival.
