About this book


Percutaneous transluminal angioscopy is opening up exciting possibilities for the interventional radiologist, since it can picture vascular features with an accuracy and clarity that previously has not been possible. Dr. Beck paves the way for the use of this new tool in clinical diagnosis; he details the technical prerequisites, gives step-by-step instructions for applying the technique and discusses how to interprete the resulting images. The amazing results of percutaneous angioscopy are compared with the results of conventional angioscopy. This approach introduces the new and unknown in perspective with the tried and trusted of the past. Major advantages become obvious: unclear or uncertain angiographical findings can be cleared up, interventional procedures can be supported, and the effects of interventional radiology can be seen before and after vascular treatment. The author's unique insight and systematic approach to the vascular system make this atlas a truly pioneering work.
