Main causes in order of decreasing frequency included pain, lack of a safe window for intervention, impossibility to position the co-axial or biopsy needle in or near the target, inability to lie still, dyspnea and low oxygen saturation levels, non-discontinuation of anticoagulant therapy, impossibility to aspirate fluid or pus when attempting drainage, and impossibility to advance the drainage catheter in a fluid collection or abscess. On multivariate analysis, only catheter drainages and head-neck interventions were significantly at risk (p=0.019 and p=0.004) to be canceled or aborted, with odds ratios of 2.677 (95{\%} CI 1.178-6.083) and 6.956 (95{\%} CI 1.883-25.691), respectively. Of 52 canceled or aborted CT-guided interventions, 14 (26.9{\%}) were repeated, 19 (36.5{\%}) underwent a different non-CT-guided interventional procedure on the same target, and 19 (36.5{\%}) did not undergo any subsequent intervention.ConclusionThe frequency of canceled or aborted CT-guided interventions is low, but is not negligible.
