Now in the 6th edition, Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography continues as a standard reference for vascular professionals and multispecialty sonographers. Our own Vascular Technology Review and Vascular Technology: An Illustrated Review frequently refer to it. Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography is a classic and effective survey that reviews arterial and venous ultrasound. The new co-editor, Dr. Joseph Polak, and new contributors have updated the diagnostic procedures and written chapters on screening for vascular disease, evaluating organ transplants, and more. This 6th edition deserves a place in your personal and departmental libraries. Contains online access for high-quality images and videos. For RVT candidates, it is a powerfully effective adjunct to Vascular Technology: An Illustrated Review, Vascular Technology Review, and ScoreCards for Vascular Technology. Saunders.
