New York/Stuttgart – The range of non-vascular procedures that can be performed in interventional imaging is vast and includes management of a wide range of conditions, such as treatment of kidney stones, obtaining diagnostic biopsies in suspected cancers, bile duct occlusions, compression fractures, drainage of abscesses, collection of fluids, etc. In particular, various cancers often lend themselves well to local tumor destruction with interventional techniques, while holding morbidity and mortality to a minimum.
This compendium presents 45 cases in detail to provide a thorough review of potential complications that may occur during non-vascular interventional radiology and interventional oncological procedures. Each case also includes a list of take-home messages discussing vital prevention strategies for each problem.

- Solid coverage of characteristic complications of special technologies, such as thermal ablation and percutaneous CT-guided interstitial high-dose brachytherapy
- A wealth of information and advice for optimizing patient safety before, during, and after interventional therapy
- Take-home messages at the end of each case providing vital prevention strategies
