ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how to manage anticoagulation and antiplatelet therapy before radiology procedures. It states that patients should undergo testing before radiology procedures to find out their complete blood count. It mentions that reversal agents ensure patient safety, however, they are not advised for patients with liver disease and mild coagulopathy. It adds that temporarily stopping antiplatelet and anticoagulation therapy is necessary to reach optimal coagulation prior to radiology.
