This is the second edition of a well-received book that has been recommended for inclusion in any vascular library or vascular radiology suite. The first edition has been fully revised so as to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date account of vascular ultrasound that reflects recent advances. The emphasis remains on the clinical aspects most relevant to angiologists and vascular surgeons. Ultrasound anatomy is discussed, examination procedures explained, normal and pathological findings described, and the clinical impact of ultrasound assessed. Atlas sections present pertinent case material to illustrate typical ultrasound findings for both the more common vascular diseases and rarer conditions. This book will serve not only as an invaluable guide for beginners, but also as an indispensable reference for experienced sonographers, who will benefit from the detailed evaluation of the role of ultrasound as compared with other modalities and the discussion of ultrasound findings in their clinical context.
From the reviews of the first edition: "A very useful aspect of this book, particularly for students, is the presentation of normal as well as pathologic ultrasonographic findings side-by-side with their angiographic "gold-standard" findings. For the clinician, the case scenarios are quite useful in helping to demonstrate the clinical use of ultrasonography. This is a high quality publication with good theoretical descriptions of how ultrasonography can be best used and excellent illustrations to accompany the text. The applications are up-to-date and thus make the book a useful addition to any vascular labor radiology suite." Doody's review, April 2006. "The emphasis in the book is on the clinical aspects that are relevant to vascular technicians, surgeons and those interested in vascular investigations. ... Each chapter is very nicely arranged into sections on normal vascular anatomy, examination techniques, documentation and then the clinical role. ... Overall, the book achieves its aim with a good overview. In this regard it would be an essential part of any vascular library. ... the book itself is easy to read and I think of immense reference value ... ." (Dr. Roger Moshy, RAD Magazine, August, 2006)
