Editorial Reviews


"A Survival Guide - written by two experienced European radiologists - is easy to read and easy to use a reference."

"The book is printed on high-gloss paper and has great pictures and diagrams."

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners November 26, 2006
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Average February 13, 2008
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.
