Abnormal fluid collections in the body and infected fluid collections called abscesses can be treated by drainage through a small tube. These tubes are inserted into the collection through needle guided by ultrasound, CT, and/or X-ray. Often these tubes need to stay in the body to drain the collection adequately and can be checked by injection of X-ray dye into the collection. This procedure is performed under conscious sedation with constant monitoring by a nurse and every procedure is performed by a board certified physician.
