Published Reviews

"This book is effective at providing a comprehensive understanding of the basics needed in order to provide safe care when performing common diagnostic and therapeutic interventional procedures, while this edition has an increased emphasis on interventional oncology procedures. It includes hundreds of diagrams and photos that not only illustrate the procedures, but also depict important anatomical and technical points, which other books do not. Lastly, it includes "tip boxes" that highlight key facts and technical recommendations and "warning boxes" that highlight common and important pitfalls that novice interventionists should be aware of."
