Vascular and Interventional Radiology 2nd edition pdf
The specialty of interventional radiology has never been, and never will be, static, boring, or easily characterized. With a unique combination of imaging, procedures, medicine, technology, and clinical variety, there is hardly a more exciting specialty. Image guided, minimally invasive therapies are recognized by patients and other physicians as the way of the future, and interventional radiology is at the center.
The Vascular and Interventional Radiology 2nd edition:THE REQUISITES was the tenth book in the series and
shared the overall series goal of providing core material in major subspecialty areas of radiology for use by residents
and fellows during their training and by practicing radiologists seeking to review or expand their knowledge. The
original book achieved its goals in outstanding fashion and Vascular and Interventional Radiology 2nd edition, which reflects the rather remarkable strides that have been made in vascular and interventional radiology over the past several years.
As noted previously, each book in THE REQUISITES series has offered a different set of challenges. In the case
of radiology ,Vascular and Interventional Radiology 2nd edition was the need to cover many new procedures
and provide outcomes information for procedures that have begun to mature. Examples from the two ends of the spectrum include the transformative development of regional delivery of targeted therapies and the growing
body of knowledge about outcomes in the use of percutaneously implanted devices and stents.
One of the major strengths of THE REQUISITES series has been the continuity of authorship from one edition
to the next, allowing authors to build on their work while updating it appropriately. The Vascular and Interventional Radiology 2nd edition is as fresh and relevant to today’s contemporary practice of vascular
and interventional radiology as its predecessor. The book also continues to be comprehensive enough to serve
as both an introductory text to the subject material covered and an efficient source for review prior to examinations.
