Abstract In a rural district of South Africa using teleradiology, challenges in communication are heightened because of end users being geographically dispersed from each other. End users, namely radiographers, radiologists, and referring clinicians are key players in the efficient functioning of teleradiology systems and must collaborate to deliver a radiological service. This study aims to present how the interaction between these health professionals in a rural district of South Africa influe...

Abstract Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is one of the most common cyanotic, congenital heart disease with complex anatomic malformations and unknown etiology. With medical advancements, most patients in this cohort require early total correction and survive into adulthood. This review addresses various imaging modalities that help diagnose TOF, methods to correct and repair TOF-associated cardiac malformations, and the sequelae and long-term complications of this disease.

Centers that run ward-based PICC services have higher malposition and reattempt rates than fluoroscopy-guided insertion. Patients with repeated line requirement and preexisting central venous stenosis or occlusion make these technical difficulties more difficult to overcome without fluoroscopy.

Postprocedural nausea and vomiting may bring about aspiration, increased intracranial pressure, or bleeding. This article outlines th...

In such cases, nurses within the interventional radiology department must sustain patient care during all phases of the procedure while also monitoring progression of clot lysis and different CDT therapies used by the physician. This article describes the 3-day treatment and management of a patient presenting with extensiv...

Abstract The project purpose was to reduce patient throughput to 15:00 minutes or less once the patient arrived in interventional radiology (IR). Ishikawa (fishbone) diagram and Plan-Do-Study-Act test of change scientific methodology were used. Baseline data, specifically the time the patient arrived to the holding area to the time the patient was ready to begin the procedure was collected. Focus groups, through brainstorming, provided fishbone categories and causes leading to delayed throughput...
