The textbook is a part of the diagnostic imaging series of Elsevier. The Interventional Procedures series is now in its second edition under the editorial overview of Brandt C. Wibel, MD, associate professor from St. Luke’s Hospital, University of Missouri-Kansas city, USA. This second edition was issued after the success of the first edition edited by T. Greg Walker, MD.
The text encompasses the extensive scope of vascular and nonvascular procedures expected of a busy interventional practice, covering topics in a comprehensive and detailed fashion. Succinct text, bullet points, and subdivided chapters also allow rapid search of pre-and post-procedure concepts.
The topics comprise seven major sections; General Interventional principles, Venous and lymphatic procedures, Arterial procedures, Oncologic procedures, Neuroradiology, posttransplantation and all Nonvascular organs procedures. The Basic and Therapeutic arthrographic techniques are particularly different from many handbooks and textbooks.
This book features over 800 outstanding medical images that include not only angiographic or x-ray images, CT, MR, and US, but hundreds of pre, intra, post-procedural photographs. All images are fully annotated to highlight the most important diagnostic information. Procedures described within the text are illustrated with step by step case examples. This valuable resource is coupled with a companion eBook that includes expanded content and fully searchable text.
More than 40 authors contribute 97 brief chapters in 7 sections originating mostly from Massachusetts General Hospital, John Hopkins University, University of Pennsylvania and from the University of Missouri-Kansas city.
This textbook is highly recommended for trainees in Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology, or for the radiologist and surgeon dealing with patients requiring interventional procedures.
