Diagnostic and therapeutic interventions guided by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are performed in clinical practice with increasing frequency and for an increasing number of indications. Ultrasound (US) guidance remains a very common, relatively inexpensive, and versatile option for guiding percutaneous interventions. The need for procedural sedation and anesthesia for minimally invasive procedures continues to grow as the number of procedures and interventional applications increase. This trend will continue as the population ages and the complexity and array of imaging-guided interventional procedures expand. This chapter discusses common interventional procedures that are performed under MRI and US guidance and outlines patient issues, procedural techniques, safety, and other clinical considerations that pertain to both interventionalists and anesthesiologists.
