Today’s echocardiography continues to be a low-cost, minimal-risk procedure with the potential to yield a vast amount of detailed, precise anatomic and physiologic information. Dr. Catherine Otto’s Textbook of Clinical Echocardiography, 6th Edition, clearly outlines how to master the core principles of echocardiographic imaging in order to make an initial diagnosis and integrate this data in clinical decision making for patients with a wide range of cardiovascular diseases.
Atlas of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Anatomy provides an essential grounding in normal ultrasound anatomy, enabling the reader to assess whether anatomy is disrupted through injury or disease. The book is structured systematically, with all commonly imaged areas illustrated by high quality ultrasound scans with accompanying concise descriptive text.
This workbook offers structured, course-like learning, and just like an instructor in an ultrasound course, it guides you systematically through the individual organ systems. The accompanying videos demonstrate basic anatomy for ultrasound, optimum transducer positioning, and the interaction between transducer position and monitor display, allowing you to experience the learning points in real time for a deeper, visual understanding.
Diagnostic Medical Sonography: Vascular is the most in-depth, appropriate textbook to cover this type of ultrasound, and is the ideal text for sonography students pursuing a greater understanding of this specialization.
Beginning with core anatomy topics, this text is aimed at providing a thorough understanding of this crucial topic, giving it the attention it deserves, and students and faculty the support they want.
As a component of the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Series, this title will allow you to provide a comprehensive, current, and consistent treatment of sonography specializations in a way you were never able to before.
This comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of vascular ultrasound provides a detailed account of this diagnostic modality and the exciting expansion it has seen in recent years. The emphasis is on the clinical aspects that are relevant from the angiologist’s and vascular surgeon’s point of view.
A comprehensive reference and practical guide on the technology and application of ultrasound to the musculoskeletal system.
It is organized into two main sections. The first is devoted to general aspects, while the second provides a systematic overview of the applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound in different areas of the body.
Fetal cardiology has developed dramatically into a subspecialty in the past 25 years. The majority of people examining the fetal heart are not ‘experts’ in fetal cardiology and therefore find interpreting images, particularly in case of abnormality, rather difficult. This book is designed as a practical guide, to be kept near the ultrasound machine, for all those performing fetal heart scans, but without the expertise of a fetal cardiologist. The aim is to allow the user to recognize the common forms of fetal cardiac abnormality and to appreciate the associated lesions and outcome.
Musculoskeletal X-rays for Medical Students provides the key principles and skills needed for the assessment of normal and abnormal musculoskeletal radiographs. With a focus on concise information and clear visual presentation, it uses a unique colour overlay system to clearly present abnormalities.
