Sir,

Article entitled " imaging for central venous Cannulation: a necessity rather than luxury" published in JOACP 2010 ;26(4) : 563-564 , is an informative case report but we would like to add some points regarding position of tip of central venous catheter during its placement. Firstly C-Arm (fluoroscopy) is not readily available in Intensive care units, so it will not be that useful. Secondly ultrasound can give localization of entry points of needle only. [1] Course of catheter or guide wire can be appreciated only up to very short distance. But undoubtedly ultrasound guided CVC placements is gold standard and complication are also dramatically reduced. [2] Position of catheter tip can be actually confirmed by chest X-ray, Trans esophageal echocardiography, fluoroscopy, and by certodyne.
