Interventional radiology serves an important role in the diagnostic and therapeutic management of the pediatric patient in a tertiary pediatric hospital. On many levels, it is important for the interventional radiologist to be involved in patient care outside the procedure room. However, lack of clinical training, time, and resources may impair this transition. This article describes a unique collaboration between the interventional radiologist and the pediatric hospitalist in a tertiary-care pediatric center, which fosters the clinical role of the interventional radiologist while providing the best care for children undergoing interventional procedures.
