"The format is very user-friendly and interactive. I loved studying with this book. It made taking the boards a manageable goal to obtain. It helped me discover my weak areas so I could concentrate in those areas more."

Commonly referred to as the "sonography bible" by many of its past and current users, Betty Tempkin's Sonography Scanning: Principles and Protocols, 4th Edition is the go-to guide for producing diagnostic sonograms for physicians. Featuring an updated two-color design, this new edition covers the latest ultrasound scanning principles along with step-by-step instructions for scanning and documenting images. The text also adresses clinical skills, professionalism, image labeling, image techniques, case presentations, handling of ultrasound equipment, and the universal method for scanning and documenting pathologies. The scanning protocols follow AIUM guidelines and provide information on patient prep, transducers, breathing techniques, comprehensive surveys, and required images. Also included are the location of specific vessels or organs, anatomy and physiology, sonographic appearance, and normal variations. The perfect clinical companion? . . . Tempkin's Pocket Protocols for Sonography Scanning. Elsevier Saunders. 672 pp.
Key Features
Scanning principles and step-by-step instructions on how to
     scan and document images
help users establish standardization
     and image documentation for physician diagnostic interpretation.

Scanning protocols that follow AIUM guidelines provides the
     essential information on patient prep, transducers, breathing
     techniques, comprehensive surveys, and required images. The
     location of specific vessels or organs, anatomy and physiology,
     sonographic appearance, and normal variations are also included.

Sonographic ergonomics and proper use of equipment help
     sonographers avoid occupational injuries.

Scanning protocol for pathology provides the criteria for
     evaluating and documenting abnormal sonographic findings,
     describing those findings within legal parameters, and relating
     those findings to the interpreting physician.

Review questions at the end of each chapter give users the
     ability to self-review.
New to This Edition
Transducer location drawings included on images help users
     understand exactly where on the body they should scan to
     produce a particular image.

Musculoskeletal chapter provides musculoskeletal coverage
     for those sonographers interested in this specialty.

Two-color streamlined design enhances readability and allows
     for more images on the page.

300 new images demonstrate the superior quality from the
     latest state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment.

Pedagogy including key terms and objectives is included at
     the beginning of each chapter to specify chapter expectations
     and focus study.
