Techniques of Abdominal Vascular Sonography DVD
An In-Depth Presentation of Abdominal Vasculature

Techniques of Abdominal Vascular Sonography DVD
Marsha M. Neumyer, BS, RVT, FSVU
Brian L. Thiele, MD
D.E. Strandness, Jr., MD

ISBN: 0941022722
Format: DVD
Catalog No: 11048
Price: $79.95

Abdominal vascular sonography is an application in evolution, one made possible by advances in imaging and Doppler technology and by the pioneering clinical work of several groups, including the teams directed by Marsha Neumyer and Brian Thiele at Penn State and the late Gene Strandness at the University of Washington. Technically, abdominal vascular sonography is the most challenging of the vascular applications. The vessels are deeper than those of the neck and extremities and, except for the aorta, rather small. They often travel at awkward angles to the transducer, making it difficult to place a sample volume and obtain reasonably accurate velocity measurements. These and other factors make abdominal vascular sonography highly operator- and volume-dependent and therefore more successful in some hands than others, as reflected in the literature. Here for the first time the acknowledged expertise and long experience of the Vascular Studies Section at Penn State’s Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is distilled in a presentation that covers the following:

The visceral vascular anatomy.

The ultrasonographic appearance of the vascular arteries and
     veins.

The hemodynamics of the visceral vasculature, including the
     hepatoportal, mesenteric, and renal circulatory systems.

The pitfalls of abdominal vascular sonography.

The solutions to diagnostic dilemmas.

The information obtained by abdominal vascular sonography can play a major role in the diagnostic algorithms for a number of presenting complaints and conditions. This DVD is an important contribution to the training and continuing education of the vascular technologists and sonographers who obtain this information and the physicians who direct and interpret these studies. Use in combination with Abdominal Sonography Review as you study for the ARDMS Abdomen specialty exam.

Clinical Guide to Sonography

CME Credits: 10
ISBN: 0323019382
Format: Softcover
Catalog No: 18026
Price: $119.00

Organized by clinical problem rather than by body system, Clinical Guide to Sonography enables you to quickly find information related to the symptom being reported by the patient. This unique format covers various pathologies that may be related to a patient's symptoms, and features illustrations and sonograms that demonstrate each pathology. The book is divided into five major sections: abdomen, obstetrics, gynecology, superficial structures, and a miscellaneous section to include pediatric and vascular clinical indications. Each chapter within those sections focuses on a clinical indication, and incorporates background information, a clinical scenario, discussions of pathologies and differential diagnoses, illustrations, sonograms, patient scenarios with multiple choice and case-based questions to ensure you have a solid understanding of the material.
Key Features
Symptom-based presentation makes it easy for beginning and
     experienced sonographers to quickly find information related to the
     patient’s symptom.

Summary tables of differential diagnoses and sonographic
     findings
provide a brief overview of all chapter material for quick
     reference.

Clinical scenarios at the beginning of each chapter help one learn
     to apply information to a clinical setting.

Case studies and discussion questions allow the opportunity
     to enhance critical-thinking skills while measuring the level of
      comprehension of the material.

Over 900 ultrasound images correlated to the pathology illustrate
     what is encountered in a clinical setting.

Glossary helps define important terminology.
New to This Edition
New chapters provide more coverage of the pathology sonographers
     encounter in practice.

New case studies with critical-thinking questions set up realistic
     situations for use as a frame of reference.

600 updated images produced by the latest technology illustrate
     the cutting-edge of sonography.

Instructor access to multiple-choice and image based test
