It is our hope that the SCAI Interventional Cardiology Review will benefit all those interested in interventional cardiology, especially those preparing for their Board Exam, ultimately providing interventional cardiologists with a high-quality education for the advancement of patient care.
In this age of advanced information technology, you are more likely to consult the latest journal article from a smartphone than to pick up a physical book. Based on typical printing timelines and the rapidity of advances in the field, by the time any book is published, it may already seem out-of-date. Yet there remains a role for a board review text such as this, with expert summaries of a wide breadth of material that simply cannot be found with an internet search, and certainly not as efficiently. The board exam by design tests established facts and practices that are at least 2 years old, making the contents of this book as contemporaneous as you will need.
