  • Presents cases in 3 overall categories—from least to most difficult—to build your skills in a cumulative way.
  • Offers cross references to Ultrasound: The Requisites, 2nd Edition, so it's easy to find in-depth information on any subject.
  • Offers 20 new case studies, including emphysematous pyelonephritis/pyelitis, xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis, subcutaneous lipoma, upper extremity DVT, and renal duplication.
  • Places an increased emphasis on differential diagnosis, to help you distinguish specific diseases and disorders from others that have a similar sonographic presentation.
  • Features new images and color illustrations throughout the text.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book is one volume from the highly regarded Case Review Series covering several radiology subspecialties. The aim of the series is to educate the reader via core knowledge question-and-answer case studies.
Perhaps the most noticeable feature of this book is the outstanding quality of the ultrasound images, all of which appear to have been acquired using top of the range systems.
I can thoroughly recommend this book, not just for departments training junior radiologists, but for any department carrying out the full range of non-obstetric ultrasound imaging. As a test for its target audience, I asked the opinion of some of our specialist registrars, and all found it to be extremely useful and informative. It will be of equal value to consultant radiologists and to trainee sonographers.

    One of the best of the case review series

    This book is very good for board review. In addition to pathology, this book presents normal images, artifacts, technical parameters and sonographic anatomy to keep you on your toes - and to help you sound like you know what you are taking about in Lousville! Highly recommended.
