      The growth of interventional radiology has contributed to the development of more complex procedures applicable to an increasing patient population, with maintenance of low complication rates. However, due to its invasive nature, potential complications will always be associated with each procedure. Prompt recognition of these complications allows for rapid treatment with decreased patient morbidity and mortality. This overview provides detailed statistics and diagnostic imaging for evaluation of a wide spectrum of complications from hepatobiliary, renal, and vascular interventional procedures.
