Interventional radiology is an area of clinical diagnosis and management that is highly technique-oriented. Therefore, the format of this quarterly journal, which combines the visual impact of an atlas with the currency of a journal, lends itself perfectly to presenting the topics. Each issue is guest edited by a leader in the field and is focused on a single clinical technique or problem. The presentation is enhanced by superb illustrations and descriptive narrative outlining the steps of a particular procedure. Interventional radiologists, neuroradiologists, vascular surgeons and neurosurgeons will find this a useful addition to the clinical literature.
Techniques in Vascular and Interventional Radiology is a quarterly review publication for physicians and allied health professionals interested in image-guided minimally-invasive therapies. Its mission is to improve patient care by educating interventionalists on the latest techniques in catheter-based therapies from experts in the field.
Now indexed in Web of Science™
Techniques in Vascular & Interventional Radiology is now more discoverable through the Web of Science™ Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).
Biopsies have become an integral part of all medicine with interventional radiology playing a key role. As mentioned in the introduction of the first issue, the indications for biopsy have expanded to include histology, cytology, microbiology, genetic testing, and molecular profiling. That two issues of TVIR have been dedicated to image guided biopsies, highlights this importance and allows for a comprehensive discussion. This second issue includes articles on renal, liver, transvenous, prostate and pediatric biopsies.
Obtaining tissue for a diagnosis is rooted deep in medical history. The earliest description is by an Arab physician Albucasis (936-1013) who described a procedure that resembles fine needle aspiration of a thyroid goiter. 1 In 1879 dermatologist Ernest Besnier coined the term biopsy in his publication in the Gazette of Medicine and Surgery to describe the procedure of sampling tissue to obtain a diagnosis. The origins of the word are from the Greek bios, which means life and opsis, which means sight. 2 This reflected his practice of removing tissue and examining them under the microscope

In “Observations concerning the Body of his late Majesty” (1760), Frank Nicholls, the personal physician to King George II, described an abnormal finding of the aorta from the king's autopsy.1 “Upon examining the parts,” he wrote, “… in the trunk of the aorta, we found a transverse fissure on its inner side, about an inch and a half long, through which some blood had recently passed, under its external coat, and formed an elevated ecchymosis.” His account provided one of the first clear pathologic descriptions of aortic dissection. Over 260 years later, the management of patients with aortic dissection remains complex, at times controversial, and is continuously evolving with the innovation of operative and endovascular techniques and devices.

Women's Health has become a distinctive practice focus for some Interventional Radiologists and Interventional Radiology groups. The rewards are many, both for the patient and the physician. Interventional Radiologists have found ways to address many women's health conditions through innovative, minimally invasive and efficacious treatments. In many instances these obviate the need for surgical procedures and longer recoveries which are especially important for women in this age group who often remain caretakers of their children and/or are in the workforce. The majority of the conditions/treatments can be summarized in one of three categories: arterial, venous, or fertility-related.
