The book is ideal for healthcare professionals with little or no experience in administering and interpreting abdominal ultrasound examinations. It is practice-oriented and structured in a way that allows readers with varying degrees of ultra-sonography knowledge to utilize the material according to their individual experience and needs. Each chapter includes a systematic, detailed description of the anatomy involved in the ultrasound examination, with easy-to-digest steps that follow standardized routine and protocol. That straight-forward approach, coupled with more than 1,000 high-quality images and illustrations, enables hands-on learning, yielding the ability to assimilate these techniques quickly and adeptly. This is a stellar resource that provides the requisite tools to locate and display the anatomical structure being tested, position and move the transducers accurately, describe and interpret the findings correctly, and differentiate key findings from the many image artifacts that typically occur. Key Highlights: In-depth discussion of organ boundaries, organ details, anatomical relationships, potentially abnormal findings, tips, and clearly defined learning objectives Anatomical drawings incorporate a "sliced 3-D" view that show how the structures are displayed by the sector-shaper beam Each chapter includes a series of images replicating the 3-D impression that results from the transducer moving across the body Schematic drawings illustrate the ultrasound images, including a body marker that shows the transducer position The "sono-consultant": a systematic guide to evaluating ultrasound findings and establishing a differential diagnosis This step-by-step guide is an invaluable, pragmatic resource to have on hand while performing abdominal ultrasound on the patient. In-depth but concise, this is an essential teaching guide for medical students, residents, technicians, and physicians who need to learn and master these examination techniques.

Fully master the basic principles and applications of abdominal ultrasound Praise for this book: This book appears to be a useful tool for different levels of users -- not just physicians. The topics provide information on best approaches for beginners while the illustrations better define acquisition data and may be helpful to individuals with more experience. The book would be useful for students and technologists in all disciplines and specialties to help understand sonographic imaging. -- Kathleen Drotar, Radiologic Technology, July/August, 2012 Designed to be kept close at hand during an actual ultrasound examination, Abdominal Ultrasound: Step by Step, Second Edition , provides the tools, techniques and training to increase your knowledge and confidence in interpreting ultrasound findings. Its clear, systematic approach shows you how to recognize all important ultrasound phenomena (especially misleading artifacts), locate and delineate the upper abdominal organs, explain suspicious findings, apply clinical correlations, and easily distinguish between normal and abnormal images. This second edition includes the new Sono Consultant, a systematic, two-part framework for helping the examiner evaluate specific ultrasound findings and make an informed differential diagnosis. In the first part, Ultrasound Findings, the examiner notes an abnormality at ultrasound, lists all findings, and suggests possible interpretations. In the second section, Clinical Presentation, the examiner starts off with a possible diagnosis (e.g. heart failure, splenomegaly) and then extracts the maximum possible information available on ultrasound to confirm, support, or differentiate the diagnosis. Features: More than 670 ultrasound images and 240 drawings that enhance the text 3-D diagrams that depict complex anatomical structures and spatial relationships Clear and concise learning units for easy mastery of material Providing a logical, structured foundation for performing a successful ultrasound examination, this practice-oriented teaching guide is essential for all students and residents building their skills in ultrasonography.

This practical reference combines an extensive list of differential diagnoses with concise descriptions of important clinical and sonographic features most commonly found in abdominal and pelvic ultrasound studies. By combining gamuts with a concise description of important clinical and sonographic features it is designed to help the practitioner quickly and accurately make a definite diagnosis. Each chapter contains a brief overview of a specific region, in which anatomy, normal measurements, and tips for performing an accurate, complete study are described. Pathologic processes typically identified with ultrasound are discussed in short paragraphs providing information on causes and sonographic appearance. Most importantly, the authors explain the rationale for obtaining certain scans and why specific features must be identified for a complete and useful examination. Ultrasound features are considered in conjunction with a full clinical history and physical exam. Shortens the list of possible diagnoses and guides the clinician to a firm diagnosis or to further relevant investigations. Sonographic features are well described and all important normal measurements are included. Will assist the clinician in diagnostic test selection and in interpreting the significance of findings in ultrasound reports. Comprehensive list of differential diagnosis accompanied by a concise text. Provides the reader with the core knowledge necessary for an accurate and reliable appraisal of a sonogram. Practical format. Can be used by the practitioner as a handy quick reference in day-to-day work or by the trainee as an ideal study guide preparing for board exams. The gamuts are well formulated by introducing the most common causes first. Saves the reader valuable time by weighting the causes towards clinical importance and frequency. Addition of all the latest modalities and their clinical application developed during the last decade (power doppler, colour doppler) Improved line drawings of classic ultrasound anatomic landmarks Increased coverage of sonographic appearance/differential diagnosis in pediatric patients.

A detailed approach to the various scanning methods with image and artifact interpretation is demonstrated with illustrations and images. In Part II : Anatomy, Application and Intervention, ultrasound anatomy and its use in surgery are detailed. The normal and abnormal ultrasound anatomy of specific abdominal organ or organ systems (esophagus, liver, pancreas, biliary, stomach, anorectum, vascularabdominal wall) with illustrations and images are demonstrated. A state-of-the-art review of the major applications of surgical abdominal ultrasound is provided in this section ranging from trauma ultrasound and laparoscopic staging to techniques in ultrasound guidance and three-dimensional targeting.
