Overview

Through the combination of the latest imaging modalities and microdevice delivery, interventional neuroradiologic techniques are currently revolutionizing the therapy for many of the most common neurological and neurosurgical disorders. Crossing the boundaries of classically delineated medical and surgical specialties including neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and neurology, interventional neuroradiology uses advanced neuroimaging combined with endovascular techniques to guide catheters and devices through blood vessels. These procedures can treat diseases involving structures of the head, neck, and central nervous system. These advances now provide noninvasive treatment for many disorders that were previously treated only with open surgical techniques, and make treatments possible for many patients—who until recently would have had no acceptable therapeutic options.

Interventional Neuroradiology
discusses CT, MR, and ultrasonographic evaluation of cerebrovascular disease, focusing on current neuroimaging evaluation of disorders. It emphasizes the integration of current neuroimaging information into decision-making and performance practices for neuroendovascular procedures. The book describes clinical techniques and includes the most current technical modifications for the varying devices in use today. Filled with scientifically concise illustrations, the text depicts pertinent neuroanatomy, imaging, and neuroendovascular techniques.

Written by a panel of today's leading experts in the field of interventional neuroradiology, this volume demonstrates the potential of these lifesaving techniques.
