Elsevier eBook on VitalSource
Now in its fourth edition, Vascular Ultrasound offers a compact yet comprehensive practical guide for anyone working in the field of vascular sonography.
The book is written by expert practitioners as an easily accessible reference, providing key information suited to sonographers in their day-to-day practice. It covers essential vascular investigations undertaken by ultrasound departments and vascular laboratories in more detail than general ultrasound textbooks, but without overwhelming sonographers with highly complex information that may not be relevant to them.
Here you will find essential information including the principle of ultrasound physics to enable accurate assessment of the peripheral circulation and blood flow, the use of the main scanner functions and controls, the main disorders of the arterial and venous circulation system with appropriate treatment and management, and techniques for the diagnosis and grading of disease.
- Practical and focused, with clear explanations.
- Step-by-step guide to scanning and obtaining optimal images.
- Extensive diagrams and figures to demonstrate key information with practical examples.
- Appendices and quick reference tables.
- Small and compact – easy to carry to studies, teaching sessions and clinics.
Accompanying DVD includes cine loops of ultrasound scans in normal and diseased vessels and of optimum scans to show potential pitfalls and common mistakes.Four new chapters and two new contributors, both clinical lecturers in vascular ultrasound.New chapter on treatment techniques of particular interest to vascular surgeons who increasingly are required to learn basic scanning skills. Sections on ultrasound instrumentation updated to cover new developments in equipment such as broadband colour imaging.Current practices in all the vascular ultrasound applications covered are reviewed and updated.
