September 9, 2009 – As September is national peripheral arterial disease (or PAD) awareness month, the Society of Interventional Radiology is highlighting recent medical research addressing the seriousness of PAD available in the libraries for interventional radiologists and primary care physicians.
New for this year is “Aortic Diseases: Clinical Diagnostic Imaging Atlas” (Stuart J. Hutchison, 2009, hardcover, 374 pages, includes DVD). This title in the brand-new Clinical Diagnostic Imaging Atlas Series offers authoritative guidance from a well-known cardiologist and imaging expert about when and how to perform the latest diagnostic imaging tests, interpret the results and effectively treat the emergency. Included are detailed discussions of hot topics, full-color illustrations and a DVD of procedural videos, animation and downloadable image libraries.
