  • About this book

  • Comprehensive, well-illustrated account of the use of modern imaging procedures for the diagnosis of arterial and venous diseases
  • The most recently developed imaging modalities receive detailed consideration, and a variety of vascular interventions are also appraised
This volume provides a comprehensive account of the use of modern imaging procedures for the diagnosis of arterial and venous diseases. Each imaging modality is separately considered and applications in individual diseases are then explained with the aid of excellent illustrations. In addition, vascular interventions such as balloon angioplasty, local thrombolysis, and stent implantation are discussed and appraised. Special attention is devoted to the problem of radiation burden for patients. The authors are all recognized experts in angiology, phlebology, and interventional radiology.
