Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Checklists are tools commonly used to help confrm that certain tasks of a process are completed. Within the health care industry, medical checklists are recognized as a means to improve patient safety. CONCLUSION. Recent application of checklists to image-guided interventions has shown positive outcomes; however, there are limited published studies. We review the literature regarding checklist use as a safety measure and focus on implementation of checklists for image-guided interventions.
