Abstract:

Verification of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) tip location with radiographic imaging is at times challenging. This case report details the experience of 1 patient and the difficulties encountered identifying the PICC tip using bedside chest radiographs. It examines, offers to explain the issues, and reviews the results of 209 chest radiographs post-PICC placement for consistency.
