Here's the 5th Edition of the classic textbook on vascular ultrasound—thoroughly updated to include a new, full-color format, a new co-editor, a new team of contributors, and cutting-edge diagnostic procedures. Five well-organized sections span nearly the entire spectrum of arterial and venous ultrasound, progressing from basic concepts and instrumentation, through cerebral vessels, extremity arteries, and extremity veins, to abdominal vessels, and the pelvis. This 5th Edition also features brand-new coverage of cerebrovascular arteries, peripheral arteries, intravascular techniques, and much more.

• Organizes each section by clinical rationale, anatomy, examination technique, findings, and interpretation for easy reference.
• Details all aspects of ultrasound vascular diagnosis, including peripheral veins and arteries, carotid and vertebral arteries, abdominal vessels, and transcranial Doppler.
• Offers chapters on physiological diagnostic techniques, such as plethysmography, segmental pressure examination, ankle brachial index, and more.
• Includes numerous tables that conveniently display examination protocols, normal values, diagnostic parameters, and ultrasound findings for selected conditions.
• Illustrates important techniques with hundreds of lavish line drawings and clinical ultrasound examples.

• Covers all currently used methods of noninvasive vascular diagnosis in a concise, easy-to-read manner.
• Offers substantially revised chapters on the management of cerebrovascular and extremity venous disease, assessment of carotid stenosis, vertebral and intracranial arteries, and upper occlusive disease.
• Incorporates many more color Doppler pictures and anatomic diagrams.
• Provides brand-new chapters and discussions on ultrasound assessment.
• Features new contributing authors who are widely recognized experts in their fields.

With 28 additional contributors.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.
From the Publisher
"This textbook constitues an excellent investment for those wanting to acquire or to increase their knowledge of vascular ultrasonography." (Journal of Clinical Imaging 29 (2005) 370-372)
Horacio Gutierrez
This book represents a well-organized and current approach to vascular sonography. This long awaited fourth edition includes updated techniques and numerous improved images since the third edition was published in 1992 The author's goal of providing an up-to-date approach to vascular sonography while emphasizing its evolving clinical role is well met by the contributors. The book has a wide target audience, including practicing radiologists, vascular surgeons, residents, and sonographers. Basic technical aspects of sonography as it applies to vascular imaging are introduced, including recent technical advances in the field. The book is subdivided into the major areas of vascular imaging, including cerebrovascular imaging, arterial and venous extremity imaging, and evaluation of abdominal and penile vasculature. The book is well written and well organized. Numerous high quality images and illustrations, including images that depict useful scanning techniques, are presented. A few notable shortcomings include limited or no discussion of imaging of female pelvic vasculature, liver transplant vasculature, tumor vascularity, and three-dimensional ultrasound. Despite these shortcomings, the goal of accurately presenting the major areas where sonography has contributed to the management of vascular disease is well met. This book is an outstanding introduction to vascular sonography and this edition is a welcome update to prior editions. I highly recommend it to practicing radiologists, vascular surgeons, residents, and sonographers with an interest in vascular imaging.
