Interventional Radiology RNs uses radiological technology to perform minimally invasive interventional techniques blood vessel procedures such as angiography, angioplasty, and stent placement; biopsy procedures; fibroid removal; and fluid and abscess drainage. Interventional radiologists often employ advanced practice nurses that oversee the interventional radiology laboratory in the absence of the interventional radiologist. Nurse radiologists in an interventional radiology laboratory setting perform a number of procedures, such as central line placements, while also assisting the radiologist in more complex procedures. In addition, they perform a number of important tasks outside of the interventional laboratory, which may include: Acting as the first point of contact for referrals and patients Attending patient consultations Performing initial examinations and patient assessments Writing pre-procedure orders Making recommendations to the referring physician, the patient, and patient's family under the guidance of the interventional radiologist Serving as a liaison between the patient and the nursing staff and referring physician Performing daily rounds and communicating patient progress to the medical staff and the radiologist Orchestrating patient discharge and making additional referrals for home care Performing follow-up visits

Interventional radiology nurses (IR RNs) are responsible for monitoring patients during radiology treatments and ensuring the patient’s comfort while educating them on invasive radiology procedures. The IR RN also assists radiologists during procedures. Unique to the IR RN’s duties is conscious sedation, in which the nurse, working under a physician’s direction and supervision, administers sedation and analgesics to the patient to achieve a mildly depressed state of consciousness.
