Overview

This workbook offers structured, course-like learning, and just like an instructor in an ultrasound course, it guides you systematically through the individual organ systems. The accompanying videos demonstrate basic anatomy for ultrasound, optimum transducer positioning, and the interaction between transducer position and monitor display, allowing you to experience the learning points in real time for a deeper, visual understanding.

Highlights of the third edition:

  • Multiple-exposure photos demonstrate the dynamics of handling the transducer
  • Triple-image sets clearly show transducer positioning, the ultrasound image, and an anatomic diagram of the site
  • Numbered structures on the anatomic diagrams help you learn new information and test your retention at any time. The legend on the back-cover flap folds out for quick reference. Each structure is referred to by the same number throughout the book
  • Numerous quiz images at the end of each chapter give you an opportunity to test your knowledge
  • Physical principles are explained concisely with clear, accessible diagrams
  • Various tips and tricks make it easier for beginners to get started

Ultrasound Teaching Manual is the perfect introduction to diagnostic ultrasound if you

  • are taking an ultrasound course and would like to prepare yourself systematically for this course or consolidate what you have learned
  • are a physician or student who wants to become familiar with diagnostic ultrasound in independent study; or
  • are a resident in internal medicine, radiology, surgery, gynecology, anesthesiology, or pediatrics who wants to solidify your ultrasound experience.

"...introduces the various applications of American scanners for all organs, including positioning, step-by-step descriptions of each procedure, explanatory drawings, and self-assessment quizzes including answers."

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donna L. Karp, BSN (Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This ultrasound teaching manual is unique in that readers can use every page as a quiz to test their knowledge. The previous editions were published in English in 1999 and 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach the physical principles and techniques of diagnostic ultrasound.
Audience: This manual is written for students, residents, nurses, MDs, sonographers, etc. Any healthcare professional would benefit from this well-written and well-illustrated instruction manual.
Features: Succinct and to the point, this manual covers all body systems and includes excellent illustrations. The ability to watch online, dynamic video sequences of physicians performing ultrasound scans on abdominal organs and vessels allows learners to view the examination techniques in detail.
Assessment: This manual enables readers to integrate new material in a very interactive manner. The illustrations are very good and the supplementary online videos are a nice feature. This is a good resource for all health professionals.
