Twelve years since its initial publication, this medical legal text remains a bestseller. By reviewing the materials in this seminal volume, imaging professionals, radiologists, and radiologic technologists stay abreast of important legal issues and are better able to avoid the scourge of a malpractice suit.
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.

Hybrid PET/CT and SPECT/CT represent new technologies that were introduced recently in clinical medicine and are evolving rapidly with several improvements in instrumentation, imaging procedures as well as in clinical trials that support the expanded role of these technologies in clinical practice. As such, an updated 4th edition of the Atlas is critical in order for the clinicians remain current with the imaging field and maintain their skills. Imaging protocols with these technologies have to be updated and/or expanded in order to acquire high quality images at a reduced radiation burden to the patient while advancing the application of these techniques for more advanced disease detection. Accordingly, beyond significantly updating the chapters from the 3rd edition, 2 new chapters will be introduced in the 4th edition, which reflects the expanded clinical applications of the technologies in the past 3 years. The new chapters are as follows: "Hybrid SPECT/CT and PET/CT Imaging" and a dedicated chapter on "Radiation Safety and Exposure: Clinical Decision-Making and the Risk-Benefit Ratio". Chapter 7 from the 3rd edition will be deleted.
The updated Atlas will serve as a reference source for all cardiologists, radiologists, and nuclear medicine physicians interested in the most up-to-date approaches to noninvasive diagnostic cardiovascular nuclear imaging techniques for the evaluation of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease as well as non-coronary heart disease. It will also serve as a ready reference textbook for medical students and residents interested in the practice of cardiovascular medicine.

All essential structures relevant to radiotherapy are described and depicted on 3D images generated from radiotherapy planning systems. System-based labelled CT images, taken in relevant imaging planes and patient positions, build up understanding of relational anatomy and CT interpretation; and all images are accompanied by comprehensive commentary. This simplified approach enables the reader to gain image interpretation skills quickly and easily.
The second edition of CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy supports radiotherapy staff as they play a more active part in structure outlining and increasingly routine cone-beam CT verification. The text has been updated throughout, to reflect recent changes in technology and practice, and the reader is further supported with additional self-test questions and more interesting pathology examples. There is new information on safety in CT, use of contrast and minimising the impact of artefacts; and the dedicated lymph node sections have been refreshed, with detailed delineation of common nodal regions. New dedicated ‘Structure Focus’ sections concentrate on anatomical structures that are challenging yet clinically relevant for trial protocols or included in updated guidelines, including the penile bulb, coronary arteries, brachial plexus and complex supra-sellar regions.
The unique combination of the authors’ knowledge of both current and emerging radiotherapy requirements and CT image interpretation has again produced an accessible and highly relevant text that provides sufficient detail to satisfy the most inquisitive of students and support radiotherapy practice for a wide range of professionals.
The superb full-colour cadaver sections are compared with CT and MRI images, with accompanying, labelled, line diagrams. Many of the radiological images have been replaced with new examples for this latest edition, captured using the most up-to date imaging technologies to ensure excellent visualization of the anatomy. The photographic material is enhanced by useful notes with details of important anatomical and radiological features.
Beautifully presented in a convenient and portable format, the fourth edition of this popular pocket atlas continues to be an essential textbook for medical and allied health students and those taking postgraduate qualifications in radiology, surgery and medicine, and an invaluable ready-reference for all practising anatomists, radiologists, radiographers, surgeons and medics.
