"As a long-time sonographer of 20 years, a quick and concise reference is always needed. This book allowed me to provide better patient care, assessment of exams, and is a diagnostic tool for the radiologist interpretation."
Teresita Gamboa, RT, RDMS

This detailed and comprehensive reference manual for breast ultrasound reflects current ARDMS guidelines and cites authoritative peer-reviewed evidence. Written by and for sonographers/radiographers, it remains accessible to students as well. The fundamental skills and techniques used for acquiring high-quality diagnostic images are explained and demonstrated through both text and images. The ultrasound images one typically sees in the field underpin instruction in interpretation and diagnosis provided by the text. Additionally the book provides images of unusual and rare appearances, allowing readers to avoid common pitfalls and resolve diagnostic dilemmas. Breast Ultrasound is especially powerful in combination with the registry-like mock exam Breast Sonography Review (also available in CD-ROM format) by Kathy Gill.

Readers' Comments

“Very helpful review of breast ultrasound! Images, explanations, and anatomy review are all very clear. This book is excellent for those who are in the field and need review, or to use along with other study materials in preparing for the breast registry exam. I would not use it as sole source as sometimes multiple resources are the most helpful.”—Lori Labriola, RDMS
