The Fourth Edition of Handbook of Interventional Radiologic Procedures features extensive updates to keep pace with the rapid growth of interventional radiology. Focusing on protocols and equipment, this popular, practical handbook explains how to perform all current interventional radiologic procedures. Highlights of this edition include new information on radiofrequency ablation. Each procedure includes indications, contraindications, preparation, technique, postprocedure management, and prevention and management of complications. Simple line drawings demonstrate relevant anatomy and procedures. Coverage also includes risk management, nursing management, and drugs and dosages. The outline format helps readers find information quickly, and the compact pocket size enables residents and practitioners to carry all the information they need with them.
