about this item

The

third edition of this practical reference guide has been updated with a

modern, visually attractive design and expanded content. The book is

ideal for healthcare professionals with little or no experience in

administering and interpreting abdominal ultrasound examinations. It is

practice-oriented and structured in a way that allows readers with

varying degrees of ultra-sonography knowledge to utilize the material

according to their individual experience and needs.Each

chapter includes a systematic, detailed description of the anatomy

involved in the ultrasound examination, with easy-to-digest steps that

follow standardized routine and protocol. That straight-forward

approach, coupled with more than 1,000 high-quality images and

illustrations, enables hands-on learning, yielding the ability to

assimilate these techniques quickly and adeptly.This is a

stellar resource that provides the requisite tools to locate and

display the anatomical structure being tested, position and move the

transducers accurately, describe and interpret the findings correctly,

and differentiate key findings from the many image artifacts that

typically occur.Key Highlights:

  • In-depth

    discussion of organ boundaries, organ details, anatomical

    relationships, potentially abnormal findings, tips, and clearly defined

    learning objectives

  • Anatomical drawings incorporate a “sliced 3-D” view that show how the structures are displayed by the sector-shaper beam
  • Each chapter includes a series of images replicating the 3-D impression that results from the transducer moving across the body
  • Schematic drawings illustrate the ultrasound images, including a body marker that shows the transducer position
  • The "sono-consultant": a systematic guide to evaluating ultrasound findings and establishing a differential diagnosis
This

step-by-step guide is an invaluable, pragmatic resource to have on hand

while performing abdominal ultrasound on the patient. In-depth but

concise, this is an essential teaching guide for medical students,

residents, technicians, and physicians who need to learn and master

these examination techniques.
