Despite the fact that Interventional Radiology is steadily moving toward a cli- cal specialty with the need for broad medical training, daily craftsmanship will always remain fundamental to what an interventional radiologist does. Without basic catheter and wire skills IR would not be what it is today. When I watch ex- rienced colleagues work I am always surprised to see that, concerning the technique and the materials, we all make the same choices. There is apparently a common IR skill, which is universal and can be learned with experience. I always see this with new IR fellows, that it takes time to step away from improvising and letting the p- cedure take the lead to logic and standardized control over a procedure. Choosing the right materials for the right job and building a level of con dence with these materials is a very important part of any IR fellowship. Why can a supervisor get a stable catheter position with a new wire in no time, whereas the fellow almost gives up? The difference is knowing your materials for this speci c indication and c- bining routine and standardized operational procedures. Hands-on workshops are always very popular at every IR meeting because one can really learn about basic skills. Lectures with the title “How I do it,” can always count on a full audience.

|Electrophysiologic Testing (Practical Cardiac Diagnosis)
Lowest new price: $23.42
Lowest used price: $4.49
List price: $48.95
Author: Richard N. Fogoros MD
This book demystifies the electrophysiologic study of those who deal with cardiac arrhythmia patients, and who are often in the position for referring patients for this procedure. Part I explores the basic principles underlying disorders of the heart rhythm. Part II emphasizes the effectiveness of electrophysiologic testing, and clarifies its role in the evaluation and treatment of cardiac arrythmias, and in the prevention of sudden cardiac death.
The major changes in this new edition include extensive revision in two areas: the remarkable advancement and growth of transcatheter ablation in the last few years; and the significant changes in thought in the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. In addition, the second edition includes a new chapter on the use of EP testing in the evaluation of syncope. This discusses the indications for EP testing in patients with syncope, as well as tilt table testing for these patients. The author notes that this latter technique has fallen under the purview of electrophysiologists, and is most often carried our in electrophysiology labs in conjunction with invasive EP testing

Author: National Research Council
Cancer ranks second only to heart disease as a leading cause of death in the United States, making it a tremendous burden in years of life lost, patient suffering, and economic costs. Fulfilling the Potential for Cancer Prevention and Early Detection reviews the proof that we can dramatically reduce cancer rates. The National Cancer Policy Board, part of the Institute of Medicine, outlines a national strategy to realize the promise of cancer prevention and early detection, including specific and wide-ranging recommendations. Offering a wealth of information and directly addressing major controversies, the book includes:
â€¢ A detailed look at how significantly cancer could be reduced through lifestyle changes, evaluating approaches used to alter eating, smoking, and exercise habits. â€¢ An analysis of the intuitive notion that screening for cancer leads to improved health outcomes, including a discussion of screening methods, potential risks, and current recommendations. â€¢ An examination of cancer prevention and control opportunities in primary health care delivery settings, including a review of interventions aimed at improving provider performance. â€¢ Reviews of professional education and training programs, research trends and opportunities, and federal programs that support cancer prevention and early detection.
This in-depth volume will be of interest to policy analysts, cancer and public health specialists, health care administrators and providers, researchers, insurers, medical journalists, and patient advocates.
