Practical step-by-step guide to peripheral vascular ultrasound

Explains the basic scientific principles of ultrasound instrumention and blood flow

Fully illustrated with 175 black and white scans, 150 colour scans and 220 black and white and colour line drawings

Contributions from leading names in peripheral vascular ultrasound

Accompanying DVD.
This book provides an understanding of the underlying scientific principles in the production of B-mode and Colour Flow imaging and Spectral Doppler sonograms. A basic description of common vascular diseases is given along with a practical guide as to how ultrasound is used to detect and quantify the disease. Possible treatments of common vascular diseases and disorders are outlined. Ultrasound is often used in post-treatment assessment and this is also discussed. The role of ultrasound in the formation and follow-up of haemodialysis access is a growing field and is covered in detail.

Published Reviews

"Since it was first published in 1999, Vascular Ultrasound has become a standard textbook for anyone working in the field of vascular sonography... The book is comprehensively illustrated throughout with clear diagrams and images. Data tables are set out on a green background, and yellow boxes intersperse the text with hints, tips, comments and other short summaries of information. This layout makes the book easy to use with the reader being able to 'home in' on the relevant information quickly.... I highly recommend this book as a comprehensive text covering all aspects of vascular ultrasound for the vascular technologist or sonographer specializing in this area of investigation." Ultrasound, May 2010
