For registry candidates, technologists in training, sonographers in cross-training, lab personnel, and interpreting physicians, here is the revised and expanded third edition of this very popular book. It began life as an illustrated review of everything a registry candidate needs to know to pass the vascular technology examination, topic by topic, in one volume. Written by nationally renowned authors, it quickly became a standard text in diagnostic ultrasound programs across the country and a practical guide for vascular lab personnel. It is now perhaps the most widely read vascular reference in print . . . So we made it better! We expanded and updated the text, added more than 40 color and gray-scale images, photo-documented physiologic exam techniques, published more case studies and angiograms, and included an integral application for continuing education credits with self-assessment quizzes, glossaries, and other new features. Why are our study aids and educational resources so popular and effective? Because they contain the same kinds of thought-provoking questions you will find on the real exam! Approved for 12 hours of continuing medical education (CME) credit by the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS).
