written by internationally known experts in the field, stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy examines one of the fastest-developing subspecialties within radiation oncology. unlike traditional techniques that deliver many small doses of radiation over days or weeks, stereotactic radiosurgery (srs) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (sbrt) delivers large doses of radiation in one to five sessions to a precisely determined target. often these techniques have proven to be as or more effective than traditional radiation therapy techniques, while at the same time creating efficiencies in cost and patient inconvenience.
these techniques, however, require careful planning, specialized equipment, and well-trained staff. this volume provides a cutting-edge look at the biological and technical underpinnings of srs and sbrt techniques. it includes a history of the development of srs and sbr; clinical applications of the techniques; dedicated devices for delivering precisely shaped, high doses of radiation; use of in-room imaging for treatment planning and treatment guidance; immobilization techniques for accurate targeting; and future developments that will continue to evolve and refine existing techniques. a valuable introduction to those just learning about these specialized techniques, and a fantastic reference for those who are already implementing them, this book covers a wide variety of srt-related topics, with clear discussions of each aspect of the technology employed.

this is the first textbook entirely dedicated to the endovascular treatment of complications related to arteriovenous accesses for hemodialysis (native fistulas and prosthetic grafts). the book addresses the anatomy of upper limb arteries and veins as well as the clinical presentation of patients and the way to perform and read a fistulogram. many details and illustrations are provided, clarifying the subtleties in catheterization and the dilation of stenoses. from a strategic point of view, it is explained for the first time that many stenoses must either be ignored or deliberately underdilated. many images help understand the different stages of recovery from thrombosed accesses. the number of incident dialysis patients increases by 5 % every year, which means that this is a field of growing interest. there are several annual or bi-annual meetings held by numerous national or international societies (vascularaccesssociety.com, sfav.org, vasmad.org, dialysiscontroversies.org, asdin.org).
- this is the first lavishly illustrated book dedicated to all strategic, diagnostic aspects and techniques dealing with the complications of arteriovenous accesses for hemodialysis by interventional radiologists
- beginners find many technical details on the most common interventions
- experienced practitioners will discover original ideas on how to address the more complex cases
- advice on the strategies are based on the results of the literature and on recommendations of national and international societies
- the book is intended for all physicians, radiologists, surgeons, nephrologists and other specialists involved in the endovascular treatment of the dialysis fistulas

magnetic resonance imaging (mri) has become one of the most powerful diagnostic tools in modern medicine, with a number of well-known advantages in terms of image quality, functional imaging options, and patient safety. the idea of using this enormous potential also for interventional purposes may seem obvious, but it took major efforts by engineers, physicists, and clinicians to come up with dedicated interventional techniques and scanners, and improvements are still ongoing. since the inception of interventional mri in the mid-1990s, the numbers of settings, techniques, and clinical applications have increased dramatically. this state of the art book covers all aspects of interventional mri. the more technical contributions offer an overview of the fundamental ideas and concepts and present the available instrumentation. the richly illustrated clinical contributions, ranging from mri-guided biopsies to completely mri-controlled therapies in various body regions, provide detailed information on established and emerging applications and identify future trends and challenges.
- covers the entire spectrum of mri-guided interventions throughout the body
- provides detailed information on interventional techniques and systems
- reflects the current state of the art
- includes numerous clinical examples with photos

interventional radiology is an indispensable and still expanding area of modern medicine that encompasses numerous diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. cross-sectional imaging modalities such as computed tomography (ct) and magnetic resonance (mr) have emerged as important techniques for non-vascular interventions, including percutaneous biopsy, drainage, ablation, and neurolysis. various organs, diseases, and lesions can be approached in this way, permitting the treatment and management of tumors, fluid collections, and pain, the embolization of endoleaks, the provision of access to hollow organs, etc. accordingly, interventional radiology is now an integral component of the interdisciplinary management of numerous disorders. the revised and significantly extended second edition of this volume covers a broad range of non-vascular interventions guided by ct or mr imaging. indications, materials, techniques, and results are all carefully discussed. a particularly comprehensive section is devoted to interventional oncology as the most rapidly growing branch of interventional radiology. in addition, detailed information is provided that will assist in establishing and developing an interventional service. this richly illustrated book will be a most valuable source of information and guidance for all radiologists who deal with non-vascular procedures.

the world’s most authoritative work on the topic of venous intervention. — gary j. becker, md
in the three years since publication of the first edition, venous interventions have increased to the point that they now constitute up to 75% of a typical day’s procedures in most vascular and interventional radiology practices. these procedures are extremely important to the interventionalist, vascular surgeon, internist, payer, and of course, to the patient, who depends on them being performed with skill and care.
in this book, you have at your fingertips the most comprehensive, thorough and systematic approach to venous interventional radiology available today. the second edition has been fully updated and expanded by 14 chapters and includes many more clinical correlations. you will find full coverage of underlying concepts, techniques and procedures, including:
- hot venous topics such as peripheral venous thrombolysis for deep vein thrombosis, treatment of failing and failed hemodialysis access, placement and management of ports, diagnosis and intervention for thromboembolic disease, and the use of temporary inferior vena cava filters
- the all important clinical perspective, covering not only the disease process, but also the patient workup, outcome analysis, indications, contraindications, risks and cost effectiveness of each procedure
- an important chapter on surgical options added to the chapter on chronic venous insufficiency
- hundreds of clear illustrations and photographs that highlight every topic
for both the interventionalist, who will find the book a blueprint to the field, and the clinician, who will refer to it as an outstanding source of patient management guidance on new interventional procedures, this book is essential.
