Because the patient was not a candidate for surgery, an internal stent was placed for palliation. This image, obtained after placement of the stent, demonstrates good flow from the decompressed biliary tree into the duodenum. The struts of the internal biliary stint long arrow are visualized. Also seen are the intrahepatic biliary tree open arrow , gallbladder solid arrow and duodenum arrowhead.
A relatively new interventional radiology procedure involves the placement of drainage catheters in pericardial fluid collections to allow drainage of the fluid and provide access to the pericardial space for the injection of sclerosing agents. The role of pericardial catheter placement and subsequent sclerosis is still being investigated. The role of interventional radiology in the care of patients with cancer continues to expand.
Interventional Radiology and the Care of the Oncology Patient
Radiologists, who have traditionally been relegated to the role of diagnosis in cancer patients, are becoming more involved in the treatment of cancer and its complications. Family physicians are encouraged to communicate directly with an interventional radiology specialist to determine the utility of interventional radiology procedures in the individual patient.
