Published Reviews

"this textbook is extremely well written"

"What makes this an exceptionally useful reference tool is the inclusion of chapters beyond the usual day-to-day typical ultrasound examinations. The changing face of modern ultrasound has been carefully included, with chapters based on the dynamic assessment of hernias of the groin and anterior abdominal wall, organ transplantation, the thyroid and parathyroid, MSK techniques and applications, interventional applications in a variety of applications, gastrointestinal, breast, vascular and peritoneal and retroperitoneal ultrasound imaging." Reviewed by Colin P Griffin, lead ultrasound practitioner, Royal Liverpool University Hospital for www.radmagazine.co.uk


"This is one of the most comprehensive books covering all aspects of diagnostic ultrasound in routine clinical use. The book and all references have been updated from the previous edition. In addition, over 380 new videos have been added." Reviewed by Ivan Jambor, MD, PhD (UMMS Baystate Medical Center)
