Abstract: Percutaneous nephrostomy insertion has, in recent times, become a subspecialised skill performed by an interventional trained Radiologist. However, this creates access issues, particularly in remote and regional medical centres. In this article, we describe a simple and effective method for computed tomography (CT)-guided percutaneous nephrostomy insertion, utilising the CT interventional skills of the general radiologist.
