Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

“This volume deals with procedures in biopsy and drainage, clearly describing clinical features and indications, diagnostic evaluation, anatomy, equipment, medication, patient preparation, procedure modality, aftercare and follow-up complications. … it will be appreciated and frequently used by all those working in this difficult and fascinating field of radiology to obtain the best results for the patient.” (Giampiero Beluffi, La radiologia medica, Vol. 118, 2013)

“This book forms part of a series providing technique specific information on interventional radiology procedures. … The information is readily accessible for day-to-day usage in the interventional or imaging department. The techniques covered within the book largely relate to biopsy and drainage procedures … . an excellent, well presented and readable reference book and will be found in the interventional suite of my own hospital. … essential reading for trainees. The editors are to be congratulated for … assisting in the day-to-day practice of interventionalists.” (Peter Ellis, RAD Magazine, September, 2011)

“‘The bullet point format is exceedingly user-friendly which lends itself to use in a busy Interventional Unit as an easy reference. This is a user-friendly, well-illustrated book that can be used as both a departmental reference text and as an informative private learning guide for those involved in ‘everyday’ interventional work and/or preparing for postgraduate examinations.’” (BMA Medical Book Awards, September, 2011)

I am a new practitioner and will be starting a position as an interventional radiology nurse practitioner. Bought this to help prep. for the position. It is over my head at this point but easier to read and understand than some of he other resources I have purchased.
