New York/Stuttgart –The third edition of Abdominal Ultrasound: Step by Step, recently published by Thieme, has been updated with a modern, visually attractive design and expanded content. This 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.
Praise for the previous edition: “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.” – Radiologic Technology
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.
