Back to What the adult IR needs to know about treating children (On-demand)
In many practices, there are no interventional radiologists who are specifically certified in pediatric interventional radiology yet many of these interventionalists perform procedures on children. The first part of this activity addresses general considerations in pediatric intervention that differ from adults. Other components of the activity focus on specific procedures and what aspects may be different in a pediatric population, specifically clinical management, venous and enteral access as well as biopsy and drainage.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologist, IRs in training, nurses, techs and other physicians at all levels with special interest in treating children.
After purchasing access to this educational activity, you will be directed to the SIR Learning Center to participate in the activity and obtain your certificate.
