Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A superb addition to interventional radiology educational resources...Purchase of the bok gives access to an additional 100 case studies viewed online as well as an online digital version of the text to allow electronic reading...There are six sections to the book, covering basic principles, all forms of vascular imaging and intervention, non-vascular and oncological interventions...this is a first class textbook that is excellent for both the trainee in IR and the established consultant who requires more information in any area of interventional radiology" - RAD Magazine, Aug 2012

"The Practice of Interventiontional Radiology appears to be an extensive and through resource that exactly mirrors its title. It is a pertinent and balanced text that appears appropriate for not only undergraduate students but also as a sourceof reference for clinical departments...The text is divided into six sections and starts with an overview of basic principles and techniques. The other five sections have been segregated into anatomical areas (aorta and peripheral arteries; visceral arteries and veins; pulmonary vasculature and venous systems), miscellaneous vascualr interventions, and nonvascular and oncologic interventions. These integrate technique to pathology making use of excellent images to support the text...In conclusion, it would be a useful resource within the clinical departmet in addition to any university library." - Radiology, Oct 2012

"This is a superb resource for trainees in interventional radiology.

Interventional fellows should find this full of valuable information, while radiology residents will be able to appreciate the nature of these procedures as well as their indications. Faculty members and interventional radiologists in practice should find this a valuable reference." - Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS(Medical College of Georgia) Doody 5 stars!

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS (Georgia Regents University)
Description: This book presents the full range of vascular and nonvascular image-guided interventional procedures, along with a comprehensive discussion of basic interventional techniques, disease pathogenesis, relevant imaging studies, specific interventional techniques, and the relative merits of various treatment modalities.
Purpose: As stated in the preface, the purpose is to present the entire spectrum of vascular and nonvascular image-guided interventional procedures in a rigorous but practical, concise, and balanced fashion. The discussion is presented with a focus on disease pathogenesis, relevant imaging studies, and relative merits of different treatment modalities and expected outcomes for specific interventional techniques.
Audience: The book is written mainly for trainees in radiology. Interventional radiology fellows should find all of the material of value. Radiology residents are expected to understand the nature and indications of these procedures. For faculty members and other interventionalists in practice, this book should serve as a comprehensive review of the current status of the field and as a valuable reference.
Features: A discussion of basic principles, including fundamentals of patient care and basic interventional techniques, begins the book. Subsequent sections cover each of the major vascular beds, various vascular and nonvascular interventional procedures, including neurointerventional procedures, GI and GU interventional procedures, and those of interventional oncology. The images and illustrations are excellent, and the references are particularly up to date and relevant. An addition to the book is a website that includes over 100 unknown case studies. These clinical cases and procedures are distinct from those in the text, and the modules are interactive.
Assessment: This is a superb resource for trainees in interventional radiology. Interventional fellows should find this full of valuable information, while radiology residents will be able to appreciate the nature of these procedures as well as their indications. Faculty members and interventional radiologists in practice should find this a valuable reference. While this is not officially a new edition, it is based on a similar book previously written by the author that was published in 2006 (Vascular and Interventional Radiology, 2nd edition). This book has been significantly updated with new illustrations and references.
