About this book

Interventional radiology has seen a dramatic increase in the number of minimally invasive therapies performed.  Interventional radiology treatments now play a major role in many disease processes and continues to grow with new procedures added to the armamentarium of the interventional radiologist, almost on a yearly basis.  There are many textbooks which are disease specific, which incorporate interventional radiology techniques.  These books are important to understand the natural history, epidemiology, pathophysiology and diagnosis of disease processes.  However, a detailed handbook that describes the technique of performing the various interventional radiology procedures is a useful addition to have in the Cath Lab, where information can be accessed easily before, during or even after a case. 

This technique-specific book is primarily of benefit to those in training in general radiology and more specifically for Residents and Fellows who are training in interventional radiology and who may be taking subspeciality certificate examinations in interventional radiology.  In addition, this book will be of help to most practicing interventional radiologists, be they be in academic or private practice.  This is the kind of book that can be left in the interventional lab and will be of benefit to ancillary staff, such as technicians/radiographers or nurses who are specialising in the care of patients referred to interventional radiology.

This volume on neurointervention will enhance the series by expounding on the specific techniques required when working on conditions of the head, neck and spine.

Reviews

“Interventional Neuroradiology is part of a series of technique-based handbooks on interventional radiology. This book is primarily intended to be used as a quick reference in the interventional laboratory by residents and fellows who are training in interventional radiology and may be taking subspecialty training. … This book answers a need and can be highly recommended as a quick reference to the angiography team in interventional neuroradiology.” (Axel Rohr, Radiology, Vol. 274 (3), 2015)
