Central catheters are known as "life lines" in intensive care units and are used frequently in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for multiple indications. The central catheters used in NICU includes umbilical venous catheter (UVC), umbilical arterial catheter (UAC) and peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) lines. The tip of these central lines need to be in correct position as malpositioned central line tips leads to many neonatal complications. Radiograph either abdomen or chest is the most widely used modality for locating the tip of central catheter...
