The introductory section of the book will highlight the unique elements of pediatric practice that are necessary to provide safe patient care. The remainder of the book will discuss all major vascular and non-vascular PIR procedures. The organization will be procedure specific with secondary area classification.
The procedural chapters will be organized using a standard format to make it easier for readers to find information. The chapters will contain introductory descriptions of disease processes, indications for intervention, technical information about the procedures and post procedure care. Area specific procedural details will then be discussed. Within each chapter images, illustrations and tables will provide the quick access to the "What You Need to Know" information such as a list of the size/age appropriate equipment that is commonly used to perform procedures.

From the book reviews:
"This text delivers an extremely useful overview of the subspeciality as a whole, providing a comprehensive summary of vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures. ... a valuable text for the practising radiologist or trainee with an interest in this growing subspeciality, providing useful insight into setting up a paediatric intervention service, procedural-specific advice and clear, relevant imaging."
