Review quote

"The authors are to be congratulated for their efforts. ... Not only are you on the brink of discovering a wonderful world of non-invasive imaging, but also your pathway to achieving the competence that you desire will be made considerably easier by this book."
-Henry C. Irving FRCR, Consultant Radiologist, St James's University Hospital, Leeds, UK; Ex-Treasurer of The Royal College of Radiologists


"The authors then walk you gently through the important steps involved in each scan, guiding the way with useful diagrams indicating probe positions and corresponding expected views of the underlying anatomy. I found these 'templates' for each scan incredibly useful ... This book sets out to give the reader everything they need to know to become confident at ultrasound scanning."
-Jim Hare, Mersey School of Radiology, University of Liverpool, UK
