Interventional Radiology: A Survival Guide provides radiology and vascular surgery trainees and practitioners with clear step by step guidance on the most commonly performed diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The text is broken up into three sections: general principles, vascular intervention and non-vascular intervention. Each chapter includes a brief paragraph outlining basic principles and theory, advice about choosing the correct catheter and device, practical guidance on how best to perform a procedure and highlights possible complications as well as tips on how to solve commonly encountered problems. Almost 300 illustrations make complex information easy to understand and apply.
