Reviewer: Maria I Aguilar, MD (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This is a one-of-a-kind book dedicated to cerebrovascular ultrasound as an extension of the neurovascular examination. Neurosonology is a very exciting emerging field and this book is well written with excellent illustrations, didactic, and easy and fun to read.
Purpose: Although the purpose is not clearly stated, ultrasound allows monitoring of the cardiovascular system and brain in response to treatment and this book is aimed at clinicians who are eager to learn about vascular examination of patients suffering from stroke and who will apply this information to treatment decisions.
Audience: Written by a world-renowned authority in the field of vascular neurosonology, it is written for clinicians caring for stroke patients.
Features: The book covers principles and basics of vascular ultrasound, vascular neuroanatomy, cerebral hemodynamics, interpretation of vascular ultrasound, and application of vascular ultrasound (both in stroke prevention and treatment). It is easy to read and follow, and loaded with multiple illustrative figures and tables. The quality of the images is superb.
Assessment: This is a great contribution to the field of vascular neurology and it will expand and enhance the knowledge of vascular neurosonology, hopefully making it more widely available in clinical practice. Another book by this author, Neurovascular Ultrasound Examination and Waveform Interpretation, is due to be released later this fall. There might be some overlap between the two.
