From The CriticsReviewer: Scott E Forseen, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia)
Description: This book serves as an introduction, a complete and comprehensive review, and a method of presenting a modern perspective on the practice of diagnostic and interventional neuroangiography.
Purpose: Designed as an introduction to neuroangiography and neurovascular diseases, the book covers neurointerventional procedures, variant neurovascular anatomy, and the limitations of their abilities. This edition continues where the previous two editions left off, incorporating new techniques and developing topics into an already high-quality book.
Audience: Although the book would appeal to readers with a range of experience, the primary target audience is new fellows.
Features: The first several chapters are dedicated to neuroangiographic techniques and safety, including radiation safety. The next several chapters focus on relevant intracranial and extracranial vascular anatomy and variants. The final chapters focus on the diagnosis and treatment of neurovascular diseases. Of particular interest to new fellows are the numerous illustrations that demonstrate proper angiographic technique. A multitude of practical tips guide readers through neuroangiographic techniques and tricks of the trade.
Assessment: This edition includes numerous updates while simultaneously retaining the valuable practical components of previous editions. Residents, fellows, and attending physicians have much to gain from this book. However, beginning diagnostic neuroradiology or neurointerventional fellows are likely to benefit the most.
