Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: John H. Whiting, Jr., MS, MD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This introductory procedure manual for interventional radiology is organized into four sections covering fundamental methods, interventional vascular procedures, interventional venous procedures, and nonvascular interventional procedures.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach the fundamental skills necessary to practice interventional radiology and to assemble information on newer techniques not covered in classic angiography textbooks.
Audience: The book grew out of the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Radiology Residents' Procedure manual, and its concise form serves well its intended audience of busy radiology residents or medical students on an interventional radiology service. The concise nature also seems conducive to a quick review of interventional radiology by the radiology resident frantically reviewing for boards.
Features: The organization, references, and illustrations are pertinent and well presented. The step-by-step procedural illustrations are particularly helpful.
Assessment: This is a concise, well-written, illustrated, and referenced procedure manual for the radiology resident on a busy interventional radiology service. It is a welcome addition to the radiology department's or residents' library and may serve an additional role as a quick review reference for the resident reviewing for boards.
