The interventional radiology team consists of physicians, nurses, and technologists that use a variety of imaging techniques to perform minimally invasive procedures on inpatients and outpatients requiring vascular access, drainages, stenting, embolization, and biopsies. The interventional nurse routinely works in all imaging areas including: ultrasound, MRI, diagnostic x-ray, cat scan, and the interventional lab and is vital to the assessment and planning of the patient’s procedure. The increasing technological demands and changing patient care paradigms requires the radiology nurse to use their clinical knowledge, sound judgment, and critical thinking skills, as well as skills adopted from the operating room, post anesthesia care unit, critical care unit, ambulatory care unit and emergency room to provide care to the patient undergoing diagnostic interventions and therapeutic procedures.
The Registered Nurse practices within the Patient and Family Centered Care Model will assess, plan, implement and evaluate care for patients, coordinate ancillary staff and collaborate with interdisciplinary health care team.
