In discussing safe ways to place inferior vena cava filters with IR colleagues in SR, we found that we could do this on completely anti-coagulated patients if we used the jugular vein and ultrasound for guidance. There is no need to stop the patient’s anticoagulation medicine due to the risk of puncturing the femoral artery during venous catheterization. It’s been a huge advantage for patients, referrers, and our practices.
We are a national coalition of independent, private radiology practices representing more than 1,700 radiologists. Our member groups are 100% owned by radiologist shareholders.
More than 400 diagnostic and interventional radiologists signed onto a virtual Town Hall organized by ACR and SIR to address a rising conflict that is currently roiling a specialty squeezed by a workforce shortage—DI and IR: Better Together…or Not?
