Nowadays, central venous catheters (CVCs) are widely used medical tools for patients with chronic diseases or patients following in intensive care units (ICU), both for treatment and follow-up (drugs, fluids, blood and blood products, hemodynamic monitoring, etc.). With new drugs and treatment methods, demand for CVCs is increasing accordingly. While it was applied with landmark technique by only surgical departments for many years, it has been used by interventional radiologists under the guidance of imaging methods since 1990s. Due to the low rates of perioperative and early complications and the short duration of the procedure, imaging-guided CVC implantation has been a method preferred by clinicians.
