Overview

Vascular and Interventional Imaging in the Case Review series covers the latest minimally invasive techniques that have replaced major operations. Jennifer Gould, MD, Nael Saad, and Suresh Vedantham, MD present the details of the detection of blockages and abnormalities in veins and arteries, removal of common bile duct stones, postoperative abscess drainage, biopsies, delivery of drugs to specific sites, and more. As a title in the Case Review series, this book contains approximately 200 cases—organized by difficulty—and 400 images—20% new, with questions and answers, diagnoses, commentary, references, and cross-references to Vascular and Interventional Radiology: The Requisites. You’ll be able to understand the requirements of the exam and sharpen your ability to interpret cases. This reference eases the challenge of keeping pace and developing procedure-related judgment in this very clinical subspecialty of radiology.
  • Presents material in a case review format with questions and answers to challenge your understanding in an interactive manner ideal for board review.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Dennis Kay, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: Part of the Case Review series, this book on vascular and interventional procedures uses an interactive format to take readers through a process of clinical evaluation and treatment planning for each case. The format simulates the oral board and maintenance of certification tests.
Purpose: Designed to assist radiologists preparing for subspecialty board certification, the book challenges them to demonstrate interpretative accuracy as well as an understanding of the clinical relevance of the findings demonstrated in the images. It strives to encompass the diverse diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed by interventional radiologists, focusing on proper clinical evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment planning. It is an excellent complement to comprehensive interventional radiology textbooks and it does an excellent job of achieving its objectives.
Audience: The book is written primarily for residents preparing for oral board examination and for interventional radiology fellows preparing for subspecialty certification. It also would serve as an excellent review for practicing interventional radiologists preparing for maintenance of certification examination.
Features: The cases cover the broad spectrum of interventional radiology procedures, including many of the more recently popularized ones. The discussions for each case are concise but pertinent, and the images are excellent. The book has three sections, beginning with routine cases, advancing to more difficult cases that board-certified interventional radiologists should be familiar with, and concluding with challenging cases. Cases include arterial, venous, and nonvascular procedures.
Assessment: This is a useful, easy-to-read, case-based/interactive learning tool that is ideal for oral board and subspecialty certification preparation. It is an excellent complement to the comprehensive interventional radiology books. This second edition focuses on clinical evaluation and treatment and includes more recently developed interventional procedures.
From the Publisher
