We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, ever more advanced technologies—neither seems to prevent grievous errors. But in a hopeful turn, acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy in the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist. First introduced decades ago by the U.S. Air Force, checklists have enabled pilots to fly aircraft of mind-boggling sophistication. Now innovative checklists are being adopted in hospitals around the world, helping doctors and nurses respond to everything from flu epidemics to avalanches. Even in the immensely complex world of surgery, a simple ninety-second variant has cut the rate of fatalities by more than a third.
In riveting stories, Gawande takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a drowning victim who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection. He explains how checklists actually work to prompt striking and immediate improvements. And he follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction, and businesses of all kinds.
An intellectual adventure in which lives are lost and saved and one simple idea makes a tremendous difference, The Checklist Manifesto is essential reading for anyone working to get things right.
Ideal for study and clinical reference, this book will be theideal companion for any medical student, junior doctor or traineeradiographer.

This quintessential home-study guide will help radiology residents and fellows prep for and ace both the certifying and core exams.
This self-assessment book, which is a compilation of the weekly e-mail questions that we send to our residents, covers a broad range of interventional radiology topics; however, this book is not a complete review of the field of interventional radiology. Our goal is to help you identify areas where your knowledge is lacking so that you can spend your study time wisely.
These self-assessment questions are designed to illustrate the clinical aspects of interventional radiology emphasizing the indications for, options to, and complications of interventional radiology procedures. Other than the some very basic technical information, the technical details of interventional radiology procedures will remain the domain of interventional radiology texts, as that material is unlikely to be on the ABR Core Exam.
Core Interventional Radiology Review: Self-assessment questions, 1st Edition, is divided into 2 volumes so that the content can be conveyed as an e-book. Each volume contains more than 100 images or diagrams in over 200 pages to aide the resident’s grasp of interventional radiology concepts – thus the large data file size.
Volume I contains the chapters entitled “The Basics” and “Arteries”. “The Basics” chapter covers information on consents, billing, pre-procedural evaluation, drugs, blood transfusions, interventional radiology equipment, fluoroscopy and radiation, clinical emergencies, and miscellaneous topics. The “Arteries” chapter has basic and aberrant arterial anatomy with numerous annotated images, information on peripheral vascular occlusive disease, treatment of vascular trauma and other causes of arterial bleeding, interventional oncology, and arterial diseases including thromboembolism.
Volume II contains the chapters entitled “Veins”, “Abdomen and Pelvis”, “Thorax”, “Kidney, Ureter, and Bladder”, and “Miscellaneous Topics”. The “Vein” chapter contains information on the anatomy of important veins including the portal venous system, arteriovenous fistulas and grafts, TIPS, DVT, venous thromboembolism, and IVC filters. The “Abdomen and Pelvis” chapter has information on percutaneous feeding catheters, gallbladder and liver disease, percutaneous interventional oncology, abscesses and enteric fistulas, and treatment options for ascites. The “Thorax” chapter includes information on percutaneous lung biopsies and ablations and the treatment of pleural space problems. The “Kidney, Ureter, and Bladder” chapter has content on hydronephrosis, ureteral occlusions and perforations, and miscellaneous renal topics. The last chapter, “Miscellaneous Topics”, has content on image-guided pain procedures, cementoplasty, and lymphangiograms.
Any monies generated from this book will be used to fund the MyCareLibrary.com website. This free website has information about image-guided palliative care procedures for both physicians and patients. The website can be viewed as webpages or downloaded in a PDF format. Many of our questions use content, hyperlinks, and images/diagrams from this website. The MyCareLibrary.com website is written to fulfill the palliative medicine needs of interventional radiology.
Since the first edition was published in 2006, Phillip M. Devlinís Brachytherapy has been acknowledged as the essential book on the practice. Inthis updated new edition, all chapters covering cancer sites have been significantly revised. Organized for specialists in several fields, Brachytherapy contains site-specific chapters that discuss how the evolving role of advanced image guidance has demonstrated greater efficacy and less toxicity. Clinical vignettes with images now accompany all site-specific chapters. The chapter on prostate brachytherapy has been expanded to include other indications in the genitourinary system, and there are two entirely new chaptersóone chronicling the history of brachytherapy and the other detailing the emergence of skin brachytherapy.
Dr. Devlin, a leading world authority on brachytherapy, has assembled other leaders in the field from world-renowned radiation oncology programs to enrichthis comprehensive text. From new data on medical outcomes to the costs and benefits of running a brachytherapy practice, Brachytherapy, Second Edition is the first and last word on what still is considered the most conformal radiotherapy technique in the field.
In the new edition:
Over 300 images accompany the chapter text and clinical vignettes
Essential tables and spreadsheets enhance the chapter on running a brachytherapy practice
Ten years of technological advancements are assimilated and reviewed in each site-specific chapter
Includes access to the fully-searchable downloadable ebook
From the Foreword:
ìAs education is essential to advance awareness of and proficiency in the full spectrum of brachytherapy applications, the appearance of the second edition of this highly regarded text is both a timely and most welcome event. The distinguished list of contributors to this work reads like a veritable ìWhoís Whoî of international brachytherapy expertise making this an indispensable resource for students and practitioners of this complex and challenging modality[Ö]A particularly welcome feature is the clinical vignettes at the close of every chapter that bring seemingly remote concepts to life in real world practical applications[Ö]With the second edition of Brachytherapy: Applications and Techniques, Dr. Devlin and colleagues give us a text that instills a profound appreciation for the critical value of this essential modality. This book makes it clear that brachytherapy not only works, it is an irreplaceable component of contemporary cancer care.î
