Interventional radiology is playing an increasingly significant role in the clinical management of patients with cancer, replacing more invasive traditional methods and making it possible to deal with previously untreatable conditions. This state-of-the-art book describes the techniques currently used by interventional radiologists in the treatment and palliation of a variety of malignant conditions. Throughout, the emphasis is on practical issues. Every chapter has been written by a world expert in the topic concerned. This book will serve as an authoritative source of information and will be invaluable to those using interventional radiological techniques in the treatment of patients with malignant disease.
