Materials

Image-guided percutaneous drainage or aspiration of abscesses and abnormal fluid collections (PDAFC) has become the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment of choice for a wide variety of fluid collections. The procedures have resulted in reduced morbidity and mortality and have helped to reduce length of hospital stay and hospital costs (1–18). This Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) Quality Improvement (QI) Guideline outlines the specifications and principles for performing high-quality PDAFC.
