Schematics

Most people (medical and non-medical) are clueless about what is going to happen, or how it will happen, when they order or arrive for a procedure in IR. Despite attempts during the consent process, it is sometimes difficult to explain these procedures with words alone. One thing well proven to increase understanding of complex topics is pictorial representation. This page includes schematic representations of various procedures performed in IR. The goal is to let people see things in hopes that it will help them understand and know what to expect.
