Poster Information
Abstract: Background: An Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) is the term given to describe a tangle (or Nidus) of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins. The presence of an AVM means the surrounding tissues do not get the oxygen they require and over time the affected vessels can weaken and rupture. Sclerotherapy is used to block the blood supply to the AVM and is a common interventional procedure carried out within the Interventional Radiology department (IR) under radiographic guidance.

Purpose of the poster: This informative and scientific poster is aimed at educating new members of staff rotating into the Interventional Radiology department, specifically radiographers, in order to acquaint individuals with the procedures that are carried out within the department.

Summary of poster: The poster includes a comprehensive definition of Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) and how they are diagnosed and treated with a main focus on Sclerotherapy and what this entails. It also includes the types of imaging needed during the procedure and showcases imaging of an interesting case study that used 3D Dyna-CT and I-Guide technology to define the needle pathway for the delivery of the Sclerosant.

Conclusion: This poster serves as an educational tool useful to members of the multidisciplinary team within radiology. I hope it will expand radiographers understanding of the role we hold within this procedure to help deliver the best possible care to patients.
