Now in its 6th edition, Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography, by Drs. John Pellerito and Joseph Polak, provides an easily accessible, concise overview of arterial and venous ultrasound. A new co-editor and new contributors have updated this classic with cutting-edge diagnostic procedures as well as new chapters on evaluating organ transplants, screening for vascular disease, correlative imaging, and more. High-quality images, videos, and online access make this an ideal introduction to this complex and rapidly evolving technique.

    • Find information quickly with sections organized by clinical rationale, anatomy, examination technique, findings, and interpretation.
    • Get a thorough review of ultrasound vascular diagnosis, including peripheral veins and arteries, carotid and vertebral arteries, abdominal vessels, and transcranial Doppler. 
    • Quickly reference numerous tables for examination protocols, normal values, diagnostic parameters, and ultrasound findings for selected conditions.
    • Visualize important techniques with hundreds of lavish line drawings and clinical ultrasound examples.
    • Stay current with trending topics through new chapters on evaluation of organ transplants, screening for vascular disease, correlative imaging, and accreditation and the vascular lab.
    • Experience clinical scenarios with vivid clarity through new color ultrasound images.
    • Watch vascular ultrasound videos and access the complete contents online at
    • Benefit from the fresh perspective and insight of a new co-editor, Dr. Joseph Polak.
    • Improve your understanding of the correlation of imaging results with treatment goals in venous and arterial disease.
