This chapter provides a basic introduction to the anatomy of the chest as it pertains to the general practice of interventional radiology (IR). The focus is on pertinent imaging anatomy relevant to commonly performed interventional procedures, with specific references to anatomical structures that are often targeted by interventional radiologists, frequently used landmarks, and anatomic relationships that may present pitfalls for creating complications. Arterial and venous anatomy is described in detail, along with the pertinent musculoskeletal, lung, pleural, and nervous anatomy. A brief discussion of the relevant cardiac structures, as well as both common variant anatomy and normal anatomy, is included.
