Interventional Radiology is a comprehensive guide suitable for all levels of knowledge from medical students, nurses, radiographers, to young and aspiring interventional trainees and junior consultants wishing to improve their understanding of the techniques or to pursue a career in interventional radiology.The text covers knowledge of key equipment and drugs used in routine interventional practice and explains the fundamental skills which form the bedrock of virtually all interventional techniques. The handbook gives practical and detailed accounts of how to carry out interventional procedures from the most simple, such as biopsies and drainages, to the most complex, such as TIPPS and stentgrafts, in a step-by-step fashion.
Interventional Radiology is written by a host of highly experience interventionists considered experts in their fields. The book imparts many tricks and tips learned through many years of experience of triumph and disasters of carrying out intervention. The handbook forms a companion which acts like an expert opinion, immediately available when planning and carrying out interventional problems.
