About this book
Currently, there are a number of larger textbooks on interventional radiology, that cover diagnosis, pathophysiology, clinical features, aetiology, natural history and non-radiology treatments. The techniques required for treating the particular diseases are also covered, but are so buried within this text that quick access in a clinical setting if often impossible.
The TIR series titles have a consistent template, with information provided in a concise step by step format with all key points bulletted for emphasis.
