about

Disease is often accompanied by pain. This book describes the techniques elaborated by interventional radiologists in the treatment and palliation of a variety of benign and malignant painful conditions. Each chapter concentrates on a particular aspect of pain management, with emphasis on practical issues. This book will serve as an invaluable source of information for the radiologist willing to learn about new pain therapy techniques aimed at optimizing or replacing more invasive traditional methods.
Bruno Kastler, MD, MS (physics) is Chief of Radiology and Director of the bioengineering laboratory in Besancon, France. He has been involved in pain treatment and promoting new radiological interventional techniques for over 15 years.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"A relatively slim volume of just over 200 pages divided into 20 chapters . . The book is clearly intended for radiologists with an interest in pain management and all . . is accompanied by numerous radiographic images that are generally of excellent quality and illustrate the technique being described well; there are also several beautiful line drawings demonstrating normal neural anatomy in various regions of the body. There is undoubtedly much to be praised in this book . ." (James Jackson, Clinical Radiology, Vol. 63, 2008)
