Abstract

Interventional radiology is a constantly evolving specialty overlapping with multiple other specialties, including cardiology, vascular surgery, orthopedic surgery, urology, and minimally invasive surgery. Unique ergonomic considerations for interventional radiology include utilization of intraoperative viewing monitors and personal radiation protection equipment. Work-related injuries are common in interventional radiologists,1 often leading to pain while performing procedures or during time away from work. This review article aims to identify the ergonomic challenges related to interventional radiology and provide background, guidelines, and specific recommendations for prevention of musculoskeletal injury.
