Overview

Ultrasound is used to demonstrate and classify numerous vascular diseases and provides a firm basis for deciding the most appropriate interventional treatment. Practical Vascular Ultrasound: An Illustrated Guide delivers a hands-on, practical approach to the diagnosis of vascular disease.

Providing an overview of performing vascular ultrasounds, the physiology of blood flow, and vascular pathology, the book explores the various vascular conditions most investigated through ultrasound. Conditions covered range from extracranial cerebrovascular arterial diseases to chronic venous disease in the lower limbs. For each disorder, the authors discuss:

  • Anatomy
  • Pathology
  • Clinical presentations
  • Differential diagnosis
  • What doctors need to know for each condition
  • Normal findings and criteria for disease as seen by ultrasound
  • Comprehensive protocols for scanning
  • Ultrasound images and observations that should be collected for best practice reporting

The authors also discuss interventional vascular ultrasound procedures. Using easy-to-read, point-form text, this concise text is enhanced with high-resolution ultrasound images and clear line diagrams. It provides a consistent, comprehensive, and professional approach to vascular ultrasound.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Neel A Mansukhani, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This concise manual on vascular ultrasound is a revision of a earlier book by the same authors, Making Sense of Vascular Ultrasound: A Hands-On Guide (Oxford University Press, 2004).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a rapid reference for trainees in vascular ultrasound and experienced practitioners who wish to touch up their skills. There are many books on vascular ultrasound, but this is a welcome update.
Audience: The authors intend this book for trainees learning the art of vascular ultrasound and experienced practitioners. It is also a valuable resource for trainees and practitioners of vascular surgery, vascular medicine, and diagnostic/interventional radiology.
Features: This book covers the basics of vascular anatomy and physiology, the physics of vascular physiology and ultrasound technology, how to perform vascular ultrasound exams, and relevant details of vascular disease processes that this modality studies. Later sections, which focus on specific vascular beds, include excellent diagrams depicting relevant anatomy, followed by examples of vascular images and key technical points, pitfalls, and tips for performing and interpreting vascular ultrasound. Each chapter has a section titled "What doctors need to know," which is helpful in reporting relevant findings and understanding the purpose behind vascular ultrasound studies. Each section has a worksheet to aid in study and assimilation of the material. One notable shortcoming is the relative lack of references. The ones that are included are relevant and accurate, but subsequent editions should include current references for the many duplex criteria listed throughout the book for the diagnosis of vascular disease (i.e. carotid stenosis, renal and mesenteric artery stenosis, lower limb arterial stenosis, etc.).
Assessment: This is a high quality book for trainees or practitioners of vascular ultrasound, and a concise reference for anyone who uses vascular ultrasound studies in clinical practice.
