Featuring comprehensive coverage of the latest developments and technology in the field, Case-Based Interventional Neuroradiology provides a thorough review of commonly encountered neurovascular diseases, as well as detailed background information on the rationale for each treatment choice. Cases center on real life scenarios with high-quality images, and offer readers a concise, practical, and up-to-date approach to the diseases neurointerventionalists face. Each case describes the clinical presentation, the non-invasive imaging studies, and the treatment, including equipment used and a step-by-step description of the intervention. The authors then thoroughly discuss the case and provide background information on the disease, differential diagnoses, and a description of the non-invasive workup, including the physical exam and required imaging studies. A separate section in each case contains alternate treatment options -- including medical, surgical, or radiosurgical treatment options -- in order to broaden the reader's understanding of the benefits or disadvantages of treatments provided by related disciplines.
Clinicians can rapidly refresh their knowledge on the success and complications rates of the different treatment options using the up-to-date literature review and a literature review featuring the latest references.
