Interventional Radiology Nurse
Interventional radiology nurses are typically experienced in operative and critical care specialties and have technical skills and must be able to pay attention to detail. They care for patients undergoing diagnostic, interventional, and therapeutic procedures.
Diagnostic radiology includes nuclear radiology, fluoroscopy, diagnostic ultrasound, MRI, and CT. There are subspecialties within these categories such as cardiovascular radiology, emergency radiology, and gastrointestinal radiology.
Interventional radiology includes procedures such as the use of imaging guidance for guiding catheters and wires through a patient’s vascular system. These procedures can include angioplasty, radiofrequency ablation, stenting, and thrombolysis. Other procedures not related to the vascular system can also be performed such as placing feeding tubes (i.e. gastrostomy).
During a procedure in the interventional radiology procedure room, a nurse in this specialty is responsible for initiating intravenous lines, administering conscious sedation and other medications, monitoring patient vital signs, and providing pre and post-op monitoring and assessments. When a radiology nurse is monitoring and administering conscious sedation they do so under the orders of a physician or may provide assistance to an anesthetist or CRNA.
A registered nurse can become a radiology nurse and can gain professional certification.
