This volume is a comprehensive how-to guide to ultrasound evaluation of vascular pathology. The book provides both the technical know-how and the analytical skills needed to obtain the maximum information from examinations and to accurately diagnose a given problem.
Chapters provide detailed coverage of abdominal vasculature, peripheral arteries, hemodialysis and bypass grafts, peripheral veins, penile vessels, and the cerebrovascular system. Each chapter includes sections on anatomy, pathology, questions to ask the patient, examination techniques, diagnostic analysis, and other diagnostic tests related to the clinical problem. More than 100 full-color Doppler images demonstrate the full spectrum of pathologic findings.
Pediatric Sonography, Fourth Edition gives you a complete working knowledge of the latest scanning technologies and the clinical applications of ultrasound in pediatric and adolescent patients. Readers will find just the guidance they need to determine the most appropriate imaging method for evaluating a specific clinical problem, conduct the sonographic examination, and interpret the findings. The book shows the sonographic appearance of normal anatomy and disease processes within each organ system and points out technical and interpretive artifacts and errors that can affect evaluations.
This edition features more than 1,800 clear, sharp images, including over 300 full-color images throughout. Other highlights include a new chapter on breast sonography, discussions of the uses and limitations of mobile instrumentation, and expanded coverage of ultrasound-guided interventional procedures.
Prepared by two leading experts in musculoskeletal ultrasound and a well-known podiatrist, this atlas is a complete guide to the use of ultrasound in the diagnosis of foot and ankle disorders. More than 160 illustrations display both normal ultrasound anatomy and a variety of common (and some uncommon) pathologic states.
For each region of the foot and ankle, the atlas shows normal ultrasound anatomy and appearances of specific disorders. The authors compare the utility of ultrasound and MRI, particularly in detecting soft tissue injuries and foreign bodies. A chapter on ultrasound-guided therapeutic injections and diagnostic aspirations is also included.
This volume is a complete and definitive guide to performing and interpreting breast ultrasound examinations. The book explains every aspect of the examination in detail—from equipment selection and examining techniques, to correlations between sonographic and mammographic findings, to precise characterization of sonographic abnormalities. Complementing the text are more than 1,500 illustrations, including ultrasound scans, corresponding mammographic images, and diagrams of key aspects of the examination.
Dr. Stavros thoroughly explains the physics of breast ultrasound and the special probes and other equipment needed to produce high-resolution images of breast tissue. Chapters on breast ultrasound anatomy demonstrate the anatomic detail that can be seen on current equipment and correlate sonographic and mammographic anatomic features. Subsequent chapters describe examination procedures for evaluating specific abnormalities and detail the distinguishing features of different cystic and solid breast lesions. Also included is a chapter on Doppler characterization of breast lesions.
