Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:" ... This book successfully meets its goal of providing an up-to-date reference that addresses emergency imaging and interventions. It is a useful companion to similar previously published texts in emergency radiology but adds the useful facet of including interventional approaches to a spectrum of emergent conditions ... This book would be well positioned as a ready reference in both academic and private practice reading rooms and would benefit emergency medicine physicians as well. "David D. Pellei, MD; Radiology: Volume 247: Number 1 - April 2008)"A new text has emerged that deals with the extensive field of emergency radiology. . the book is informative, up to date, and enjoyable. . The subject matter is well presented and would be useful to emergency department physicians and radiology residents rotating through a trauma center or emergency radiology department. Those radiologists whose practice does not include the performance of interventional procedures would also benefit from the information in this volume." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 29, March, 2008)
