A venogram is a diagnostic procedure that uses x-ray to take pictures of the veins (blood vessels) in a specific part of the body.
How Children’s Hospital Boston approaches venography
Our pediatric interventional radiologists, the doctors who do the procedure, are highly trained and experienced in the advanced techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of certain disorders of blood vessels in children and infants.
In addition to the interventional radiologist, your child will be cared for by a team of anesthesiologists, nurse practitioners, nurses and technologists who specialize in caring for children undergoing interventional radiology procedures and treatments.
We perform venograms in our suite on the second floor of the hospital, which features three procedure rooms equipped with the latest imaging technology, a recovery area for patients who have received sedation or anesthesia and examining rooms for outpatient visits.
