Now in its 6th edition, Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography, by Drs. John Pellerito and Joseph Polak, provides an easily accessible, concise overview of arterial and venous ultrasound. A new co-editor and new contributors have updated this classic with cutting-edge diagnostic procedures as well as new chapters on evaluating organ transplants, screening for vascular disease, correlative imaging, and more. High-quality images, videos, and online access make this an ideal introduction to this complex and rapidly evolving technique.

  • Find information quickly with sections organized by clinical rationale, anatomy, examination technique, findings, and interpretation.
  • Get a thorough review of ultrasound vascular diagnosis, including peripheral veins and arteries, carotid and vertebral arteries, abdominal vessels, and transcranial Doppler. 
  • Quickly reference numerous tables for examination protocols, normal values, diagnostic parameters, and ultrasound findings for selected conditions.
  • Visualize important techniques with hundreds of lavish line drawings and clinical ultrasound examples.

"This textbook constitutes an excellent investment for those wanting to acquire or to increase their knowledge of vascular ultrasonography." Journal of Clinical Imaging, review of last edition


"This book..has been a leading text in vascular ultrasound for many years and contains a wealth of information. Although the majority of the book focuses on ultrasound imaging, non-imaging techniques used in vascular assessment are also included... Each chapter is well illustrated with ultrasound images, some of which are new for this edition, including a small number of angiogrpahic images... This book should ideally be on the bookshelf of any department providing a vascular ultrasound service. It is also invaluable to any trainee in this field although due to its weight students will not carry it around with them. however this new edition provides password protected online access to an electronic version of the book which may help overcome this.

Radiology, Oct 2012


"Now in its sixth edition, this book is getting better and better with the introduction of vascular ultrasound evulation  of organ transplant, vascular screening and online text and video access...The book is very well written and the contribution by various authors who are expert in the field made this book an excellent source of knowledge for those who seek to learn  or update their vascular sonography techniques knowledge...I enjoyed reading this book and in my opinion it is the most comprehensive on the subject so far and should be on the shelf of every radiology department who provide vascular service. This book is aimed at all the vascular radiologists and sonographers who performs vascular  ultrasound or are in process of learning .Overall an excellent work and a must-read book on vascular ultrasonography."

"This edition offers some new information. If asked by a new student or resident which book to purchase, I would definitely recommend the sixth edition."- Donna Blackburn, MS, RN, RVT (Northwestern Memorial Hospital) Doody Review!
