Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Jason R Bauer, MD (Massachusetts General Hospital)
Description: This is a comprehensive and concise review of vascular ultrasound and diagnosis substantially updated in content and relevance since the 2000 edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as an educational tool reviewing the principles and practice of vascular radiology for all levels of practitioners. This is a valuable endeavor as noninvasive vascular imaging with ultrasound is a central diagnostic tool for vascular disease but is often challenging. The authors meet their objectives with this new edition. This book is a comprehensive review and teaching manual.
Audience: The editors and authors use their years of combined experience to generate a book rich in practical information, facts, and illustrations designed to advance the understanding and skill of beginners or seasoned practitioners. The authors assembled for this edition are authorities in the field.
Features: The preface states "head to toe" coverage of vascular ultrasound. The reader is given an extensively updated version of a proven text. New color images, well placed charts, revised text, and the inclusion of new technology such as stent grafts are welcome improvements. New end of chapter review cases challenge the reader and promote understanding. The new edition is more readable and useable than the last.
Assessment: While other books may cover general ultrasound more extensively, none is a standalone text for vascular ultrasound like this one. As a vascular radiologist and RVT, this is my new "go to" book. The advances since the last edition justify upgrading.
