Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Hyo-Chun Yoon, MD, PhD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This book is designed to be a "basic, but comprehensive, training manual in interventional techniques."
Purpose: The purpose is provide an overview of the burgeoning field of radiologic interventions.
Audience: This book is geared to the interventional radiologist in training. Physicians other than interventional radiologists would benefit from reading this text because it explains many of the procedures that can now be performed under radiologic guidance. It is not designed for the full-time interventional radiologist, who should already be familiar with most of the covered topics. I would not recommend attempting many of the procedures described in this book to the reader, unless he or she is supervised by someone with sufficient personal experience.
Features: The layout of the individual chapters is very good. All the basic aspects of the different procedures are appropriately discussed, including indications, technique, and possible complications. The chapters on analgesia and sedation and ethics and informed consent are excellent because their importance is often forgotten by radiologists in training. Multiple-choice questions for each topic are an excellent idea. However, the answers should be carefully explained, because I do not believe that all interventionalists would agree with the answers provided in this book.
Assessment: This is an excellent book for radiologists in training as well as physicians in other specialties who are interested in what interventional radiologists can offer to their patients. It is concise and packed with useful information. The selection of diagrams and illustrations is excellent. This is not a textbook for the full-time interventional radiologist, and in that sense the title is a bit misleading because it is not really a practical guide but an overview of this rapidly growing field.
