Title: JHAH experience of Radiology Technologists performing peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) single center experience


We conducted this study to review our local experience performing peripherally inserted central catheters by interventional radiology technologists. Material and methods:  This is a retrospective study of peripherally inserted central catheters performed by interventional radiology technologists. These procedures were performed using ultrasound guidance for venous puncture and fluoroscopy or electrocardiography guidance followed by Chest X-ray to confirm tip location Results: We reviewed all peripherally inserted central catheters performed in interventional radiology between May 2017 and July 2020. The review process included the success rate, number of venous puncture attempts, method of guidance, procedure time, fluoroscopy time, catheter duration to removal, and complications

Conclusion: Interventional radiology technologists can safely perform peripherally inserted central catheters with a high success rate. Extending Interventional radiology technologists' role to perform peripherally inserted central catheters allows interventional radiologists to do more complex procedures. This enhances the workflow, increases the interventional radiology team efficiency, and improves the waiting time.
