This book is a detailed, accessible and comprehensive reference manual reflecting current guidance & citing recent peer-reviewed evidence. It is written by and for radiographers. Through text and diagrams the fundamental skills and techniques for acquisition of high quality diagnostic images are explained and demonstrated; high quality ultrasound images throughout underpin instruction on accurate image interpretation and diagnosis. Inclusion of unusual and rare appearances allow the reader to avoid common pitfalls and resolve diagnostic dilemmas.

The inclusion of clinical and pathological information gives the book an holistic outlook and wider appeal to those not specifically interested in practical instruction. The author has expertise and current experience in clinical practice and educational delivery and focuses on application of theory to practice giving step-by-step practical guidance with clear, concise and structured content. Ultrasound & mammography practitioners in training can use this book to underpin practical and theoretical instruction to achieve success on formal education programmes; practising medical and non-medical health care professionals continue to refer to a departmental shelf copy as an authoritative reference text to inform and improve the quality of their everyday clinical practice and service to patients.
