Editorial Reviews

Review

"A Survival Guide - written by two experienced European radiologists - is easy to read and easy to use a reference."
"Throughout each chapter there are short tips, and pitfalls (the authors refer to them as "alarms") to watch for different procedures. A bibliography at the end of each chapter, with a one sentence synopsis of each entry, directs the reader to more information."
"The book is printed on high-gloss paper and has great pictures and diagrams."
"Interventional Radiology: A Survival Guide is great book for someone who is looking for an introduction to theory, interventional terminology, as well as practical usage information." AuntMinnie.com, September 2005

"The book outlines steps for the most common diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, offering troubleshooting tips, warnings, and b&w medical images." SciTech Book News, December 2005

"Interventional Radiology provides important and detailed analysis of Angiography and Vascular Intervention - procedures that comprise some of the most common studies done in this realm. Recommended as both an in-hospital reference and as a teaching text in courses which focus on this specialty-area of radiology." The Electric Review, January/February 2006 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
If you are new to intervention, then make it your first book to read. If not, then make it the 2nd book. The book doesn't describe the techniques in detail, but it will give a good orientation about what you are about to do, what to look for, and what to avoid. (It will answer some questions that you may be shy to ask .. shhhhh).

After all, it is a good book for beginners

Format: Paperback
I have this book. This is a good introductory book but without too in depth detail. One would be better suited with the Handbook of Interventional Radiology Procedures as a pocket guide. The Requisites and Valji's IR text are excellent. A's IR book is very in depth but easy to read. As a first text for IR, I would go with Valji or the Requisites. If you are a resident, go with either one. If you are a fellow, good luck findings time to read anything but then again, you must have already read one of these books. The handbook is a good quick reference for indications/contraindications, injections rates and statistics (success rate, mortality and complication rates), meds, dosing. This is good for problem solving and patient guide. As technical skill comes with time, I would use this to help decision making. Remember, you can do many things (technically) in IR, but the real question is, "Should you." Books that answer the "should you" questions is what you need to get.

I feel that this book is a very informative guide, regardless of experience in the field. It starts at the basics and elaborates on every aspect of the interventional lab. Good introductory book for anyone starting in this area of radiology.

Very informational and up to date. Would be better if there was a quiz or test to go along with it.
