Abstract

There is a stark contrast between adult and pediatric interventional radiology practice. The essential elements of this all relate to working with children, including a need for greater procedural sedation and anesthesia; the psychology of working with children and their families; a skill set based around smaller bodies; and technology for smaller and growing humans. Interventional radiology departments that cater to children need to accommodate these factors so that sick children can access minimally invasive image-guided therapy in a safe and nonthreatening environment.
