This book provides an understanding of the underlying scientific principles in the production of B-mode and Colour Flow imaging and Spectral Doppler sonograms. A basic description of common vascular diseases is given along with a practical guide as to how ultrasound is used to detect and quantify the disease. Possible treatments of common vascular diseases and disorders are outlined. Ultrasound is often used in post-treatment assessment and this is also discussed. The role of ultrasound in the formation and follow-up of haemodialysis access is a growing field and is covered in detail.

  • Practical step-by-step guide to peripheral vascular ultrasound.
  • Explains the basic scientific principles of ultrasound instrumention and blood flow.
  • Fully illustrated with 175 black and white scans, 150 colour scans and 220 black and white and colour line drawings.
  • Contributions from leading names in peripheral vascular ultrasound.
  • Accompanying DVD includes cine loops of ultrasound scans in normal and diseased vessels and of optimum scans to show potential pitfalls and common mistakes.
  • Four new chapters and two new contributors, both clinical lecturers in vascular ultrasound.
  • New chapter on treatment techniques of particular interest to vascular surgeons who increasingly are required to learn basic scanning skills.
  • Sections on ultrasound instrumentation updated to cover new developments in equipment such as broadband colour imaging.
  • Current practices in all the vascular ultrasound applications covered are reviewed and updated.
