What is the recommended verbiage for releasing a PICC for use when read by radiology?
In our facility some radiologists will read as "overlies teh SVC", "tip just within the SVC", "tip projected over the SVC", "tip likely within the SVC"....etc, thoughts on whether or not to release a PIcc for use if it is not read with an exact PICC tip position.
