Joint BSH and BSIR guidance on the Assessment of Bleeding Risk prior to procedures in Interventional Radiology

The British Society of Interventional Radiology and British Society for Haematology have jointly produced guidance on how to quicky and simply assess and manage bleeding risk in patients referred for a procedure in the radiology department. This briefly covers the assessment of patients for a possible bleeding disorder, what tests a radiologist should consider and when to refer. It also covers management of patients on the more common antithrombotic medications. It is not meant to be a detailed guideline but rather a succinct document that deals with some of the common scenarios that radiologists face in their normal practice. It is primarily aimed at radiologists and is also available on the website of the British Society of Interventional Radiology.
