Description

Ultrasound is used to demonstrate and classify numerous vascular diseases and provides a firm basis for deciding the most appropriate interventional treatment. Practical Vascular Ultrasound: An Illustrated Guide delivers a hands-on, practical approach to the diagnosis of vascular disease.


Providing an overview of performing vascular ultrasounds, the physiology of blood flow, and vascular pathology, the book explores the various vascular conditions most investigated through ultrasound. Conditions covered range from extracranial cerebrovascular arterial diseases to chronic venous disease in the lower limbs. For each disorder, the authors discuss:




Anatomy
Pathology
Clinical presentations
Differential diagnosis
What doctors need to know for each condition
Normal findings and criteria for disease as seen by ultrasound
Comprehensive protocols for scanning
Ultrasound images and observations that should be collected for best practice reporting





The authors also discuss interventional vascular ultrasound procedures. Using easy-to-read, point-form text, this concise text is enhanced with high-resolution ultrasound images and clear line diagrams. It provides a consistent, comprehensive, and professional approach to vascular ultrasound.

Review quote

"This book covers the basics of vascular anatomy and physiology, the physics of vascular physiology and ultrasound technology, how to perform vascular ultrasound exams, and relevant details of vascular disease processes that this modality studies. Later sections, which focus on specific vascular beds, include excellent diagrams depicting relevant anatomy, followed by examples of vascular images and key technical points, pitfalls, and tips for performing and interpreting vascular ultrasound. ... This is a high quality book for trainees or practitioners of vascular ultrasound, and a concise reference for anyone who uses vascular ultrasound studies in clinical practice."
