“Updates in Interventional Radiology,” the first in a series of annual literature reviews of minimally invasive medicine, was recently released by Society of Interventional Radiology Press.
Brian Funaki, professor of radiology and section chief of interventional radiology at the University of Chicago Medical Center, USA, and Charles E Ray, professor and chief of interventional radiology at the University of Colorado, Denver, USA are the editors of this literature review.
“The scope of interventional radiology is expanding, and it has become increasingly difficult for practicing interventional radiologists to digest and assimilate the volume of literature required to remain current,” said Funaki. “In ‘Updates in Interventional Radiology,’ we culled dozens of recent articles relevant to the practice of interventional radiology, pinpointed emerging trends and technologies, and through summaries and commentaries—and by using individual practices as examples—provided a roadmap for incorporating these into an existing practice”.
“With literature culled from radiology journals and a broad spectrum of non-radiology journals, ‘Updates in Interventional Radiology’ will serve as a source for the most pertinent recent literature in interventional radiology by leading experts in the field,” said Ray. “Our hope is that this new volume will bridge the gap between the wealth of literature required to remain current and the ways in which advances in the specialty can be incorporated into a successful practice.”
The book includes topics on clinical practice, aneurysms, femoropopliteal disease, venous thromboembolism, portal hypertension, liver malignancy, pulmonary and renal malignancies, stroke and women’s health. Each chapter contains the strengths of the published literature, a summary of how the editors have implemented changes in individual clinical practices and a key points section that highlights changes in practice patterns.
