Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography: Expert Consult - Online and Print / Edition 6

Now in its 6th edition, Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography, by Drs. John Pellerito and Joseph Polak, provides an easily accessible, concise overview of arterial and venous ultrasound. A new co-editor and new contributors have updated this classic with cutting-edge diagnostic procedures as well as new chapters on evaluating organ transplants, screening for vascular disease, correlative imaging, and more. High-quality images, videos, and online access make this an ideal introduction to this complex and rapidly evolving technique.

• Find information quickly with sections organized by clinical rationale, anatomy, examination technique, findings, and interpretation.
• Get a thorough review of ultrasound vascular diagnosis, including peripheral veins and arteries, carotid and vertebral arteries, abdominal vessels, and transcranial Doppler.
• Quickly reference numerous tables for examination protocols, normal values, diagnostic parameters, andultrasound findings for selected conditions.
• Visualize important techniques with hundreds of lavish line drawings and clinical ultrasound examples.

• Stay current with trending topics through new chapters on evaluation of organ transplants, screening for vascular disease, correlative imaging, and accreditation and the vascular lab.
• Experience clinical scenarios with vivid clarity through new color ultrasound images.
• Watch vascular ultrasound videos and access the complete contents online at
• Benefit from the fresh perspective and insight of a new co-editor, Dr. Joseph Polak.
• Improve your understanding of the correlation of imaging results with treatment goals in venous and arterial disease.

Learn the principles of vascular ultrasonography from the most trusted reference in the field.
