Complications of central venous catheters diagnosed by computed tomography

Academic Article


  • Numerous reports of complications of central venous catheters have appeared in the literature. Most often these complications are diagnosed by plain or interventional radiography. Two cases are reported in which computed tomography was instrumental in diagnosing an abnormality that was not obvious on conventional radiography. This report demonstrates the value of this noninvasive technique for rapid and accurate evaluation. © 1987.
