Practical Ultrasound: An Illustrated Guide / Edition 1

Technology has advanced greatly in the past twenty years and the use and efficiency of ultrasounds has also increased. Despite this, practical instruction in ultrasounds does not feature heavily in basic doctor training. This in turn leaves many doctors and trainee specialists unsure of how to employ ultrasound for their patients, as well as how to read them properly. Practical Ultrasound: An Illustrated Guide is here to solve that problem; packed full of illustrations and scans, it employs a four step practical guide in the use and reading of ultrasounds. Focusing on different anatomical areas and conditions specific to those body parts, each chapter uses a combination of illustrations and scans to provide a step-by-step guide to what to look for and where to find it: step 1 - where to put the probe; step 2 - instructions to operator; step 3 - schematic of what is seen in the scan; and step 4 - the scan. "Practical Ultrasound: An Illustrated Guide" is a must have for trainee radiologists, ultrasonographers and for all of those passing on diagnostic information to patients.
