About this book

This textbook offers a comprehensive guide to interventional radiology (IR) for medical students, residents, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and fellows. IR is constantly evolving to meet the growing demands of patient care by applying cutting-edge technology to minimally invasive image-guided procedures. A dynamic specialty, interventional radiology has gained significant traction and interest in recent years, with combined IR/DR residencies rising to meet the increasing demand. This book addresses this growing need for a reference in IR, allowing students to gain a solid foundation to prepare them for their careers.

The book is divided into two main sections, with many images and key point boxes throughout that offer high-yield pearls along with the specific How To's necessary for practice. The first section is designed to give readers an introduction to IR, including radiation safety, commonly used devices, patient care, and anatomy. The second portion divides into sections covering major body areas, diseases, conditions, and interventions. These chapters cover procedures including pathophysiology, indications for treatment, as well as alternative treatments before delving into interventional therapy. IR Playbook gives medical students, residents, and trainees a full perspective of interventional radiology.

Reviews


"This textbook is intended to provide a sufficient level of resolution to acquaint both medical students and resident physicians with the field of interventional radiology (IR). … readable prose, high-quality radiologic images, and easy-to-understand diagrams making concepts accessible to novice trainees. Throughout the book there are convenient ‘How To’ text boxes that contain concise descriptions of procedures in a stepwise fashion.” (Samuel Armstrong, Radiology, Vol. 3 (1), 2019)

“This is a high-quality, educational book presented in an excellent manner to appeal to medical students and radiology residents. The detailed presentation of the information makes the book a fundamental resource for residents, and it fills a void in interventional radiology books dedicated specifically to radiology trainees.” (Daniel Hynes, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2018)
