Interventional radiologists use expertise in imaging to deliver treatment directly to a fibroid, blocking the flow of blood to the tumor and causing it to shrink. "With these modern treatments, hopefully the trend to offer traditional surgery first will be reversed. It's important for patients to ask questions, obtain consults with different types of doctors and know all their treatment options," added Nemcek, an interventional radiologist and professor of radiology and surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Ill.

The 46-article collection of previously published articles and abstracts -- with some of the leading researchers in the field -- is divided into nine sections: indications, uterine imaging, technique, outcomes, other indications for embolization, economics, radiation exposure, other procedures and animal studies.

According to Spies, the collection includes an important article, "Leiomyoma Infarction After Uterine Artery Emb
