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. 10 hours of SDMS-approved CME credits.
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
provide a brief overview of all chapter material for quick

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.
