Now in the 7th 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. Easy-to-read focused content along with abundant illustrations make Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography the definitive reference on arterial and venous ultrasound, and is a text trusted by radiologists, interventional radiologists, vascular fellows, interventional fellows, sonographers, and residents alike. This revised 7th edition covers all aspects of ultrasound vascular diagnosis, including peripheral veins and arteries, carotid and vertebral arteries, abdominal vessels, and transcranial Doppler. Highly illustrated step-by-step explanations guide you through the full spectrum of ultrasound sonography practice, including what’s new to the field.
Key Features
Quick reference sections organized by clinical rationale, anatomy, examination technique, findings, and interpretation.

2,100 images including clinical ultrasound images and anatomic line drawings with over 1,000 of them in full color.

New coverage of noninvasive image-guided procedures, robotic embolization, laser therapy, new Doppler ultrasound, and guidance for promoting patient relationships.

A clear and practical approach to interventions and underlying rationales for complex principles, such as Doppler ultrasound physics and blood flow hemodynamics.

Extensive tables, charts, and graphs clearly explain examination protocols, normal values, diagnostic parameters, and ultrasound findings.

Enhanced eBook version included with purchase allowing access to text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
