Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Suman Annambhotla, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This brief overview of the major vascular ultrasound beds studied in a traditional vascular laboratory really shines in its use of ultrasound images, with each chapter presenting multiple sample images of all kinds of pathology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a generalized understanding of the principles and application of vascular ultrasound with attention to technique and detail. Both arterial and venous fields are discussed with excellent quality images. The book meets its objectives in succinct chapters with appropriate images. Only a few ultrasound physics topics are left out.
Audience: Written with trainees, practitioners, or ultrasound technologists in mind, the book can be a valuable tool for anyone who wants to learn more about ultrasound technique and interpretation. Vascular surgeons, radiologists, cardiologists, and general medicine physicians would benefit most. The authors, though not well known, have excellent insight and provide succinct, but descriptive descriptions of ultrasound techniques.
Features: The book covers the majority of arterial and venous ultrasound including carotid, lower extremity, upper extremity, aortic, renal, and mesenteric vascular beds. In addition, the last two chapters cover intravascular ultrasound. The chapters that really stand out are those on carotid, venous lower extremity, and intravascular ultrasound of the aorta and iliacs; they are thorough and contain excellent images. Shortcomings of the book include the lack of a brief introduction to the physics of ultrasound technology — this would be appropriate in the first chapter - and the lack of even a short discussion of dialysis access ultrasound evaluation in the upper extremity venous chapter.
Assessment: Overall, this is an excellent overview of the major vascular beds that are imaged in an ICAVL vascular lab. The authors have done a good job of keeping the chapters brief, while including several high quality ultrasound images at the end of each chapter. This is the strong point of the book. The lack of a brief discussion of ultrasound physics and duplex evaluation and surveillance of dialysis access prevents the book from being a top resource in comparison to Strandness's Duplex Scanning in Vascular Disorders, 4th edition, Zierler (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009), or Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography, 6th edition, Pellerito and Polak (Elsevier, 2012). However, it is an excellent resource for any vascular lab, fellowship or physician office.
