Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a very good medium-sized textbook on the subject and provides an excellent information source for day-to-day problems faced by interventional radiologists whatever their experience.
Clinical Radiology, April 2008

"This is the second edition of a book that attempts to be an all-encompasing volume on vascular and non-vascular interventional radiology.
Overall, this is a book that I enjoyed. There is much excellent information in ti...it certainly should be on the shelves of all teaching departments. Many trainees, both those thinking of an interventional career or just interested to know the scope of the subject, would find much of use in it."
- Reviewed by Dr Colin Todd, Consultant Radiologist and Medical Director, Kingston Hospital, Surrey.

Format: Hardcover
With this volume Dr. Valji has produced THE book introducing vascular imaging, covering in a short, comprehensible but also very exhaustive volume the basics of vascular access, devices, techniques and other necessary bits of knowledge. To my knowledge, this is the first volume covering introductory vascular imaging and technique. The only (very slight) detraction from the perfect is - seen with European eyes - the skimpy treatment of ultrasound guided intervension. In my opinion this is not only a very good textbook, it is also a model of presentation, terseness and clarity of expression.

Valji's Vascular and Interventional Radiology is an excellent, highly readable and mostly up-to-date textbook which will be very useful to radiology residents.

My sole complaint (and it's significant) is about the figures. In most cases there are no arrows and the captions are often quite vague, just mentioning the type of finding in the figure without providing specific anatomic localization. The net effect is to sometimes leave you searching the pictures to even find the abnormality! Certainly it means that, unlike with many radiology texts, it's hard to just "look at the pictures" and their captions and ignore the text of this book.

All in all, I think this is a very good book, mostly because the text is so well-written. But I do think that the captions could be expanded in future editions and arrows added to some of the figures to highlight key findings.

Format: Hardcover
I am second year radiology resident and this book really works in my rotation for the intervention area, I don't regret the purchase, it is worth each cent. Good images and with simple explanation. There is not a book that has everything, but I believe that this it is the most complete on the matter.
