Vascular Access and Dialysis Procedures

For conditions necessitating repeated vascular access, such as kidney disease or cancer treatment, having a reliable, efficient, and minimally invasive means to reach the bloodstream is crucial. This is where central venous access devices come into play. These devices, implanted beneath the skin, afford medical professionals direct access to the bloodstream, thereby eliminating the need for repeated needle sticks, which can be both uncomfortable and time-consuming for the patient.

At ImageCare Radiology, our experienced interventional radiologists specialize in inserting various central venous access devices, depending on the specific treatment needs and the duration of therapy. These devices not only make the treatment process more comfortable for the patient but also enable some patients to administer their own treatments at home, which can significantly improve their quality of life. The vascular access procedures we offer include:

Dialysis Catheters

For patients with kidney failure, dialysis catheters are essential for hemodialysis. These tubes provide a means for blood to be removed from the body, filtered for waste and excess fluids, and then returned. Their design allows for high blood flow rates, making dialysis sessions as efficient as possible.

PICC Lines

Peripherally inserted central catheters, or PICC lines, are long, thin tubes inserted through a peripheral vein in the arm and navigated to the larger veins near the heart. PICC lines are often used for treatments that last for weeks to months, such as chemotherapy or extended courses of antibiotics.
