Catheter angiography, while not exactly becoming a lost art, is performed less frequently these days. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance angiography have largely replaced it for the primary diagnosis of vascular disease. As often as not, catheter angiograms are simply part of interventional procedures, performed more for navigational than diagnostic purposes. This holds true in the nervous system. The basic knowledge and skills needed for a specialist-in-training to become comfortable in the angiosuite while rotating through a neuroradiology service have therefore changed. The author of Practical Neuroangiography understands this and has written what amounts to an excellent introductory textbook to interventional neuroradiology.
