Ultrasound imaging is one of the most important and widely used diagnostic tools in modern medicine, second only to the conventional x-ray. Although considered a mature field, research continues for improving the capabilities and finding new uses for ultrasound technology while driving down the cost of newer, more complicated procedures such as intravascular ultrasound. Diagnostic Ultrasound: Imaging and Blood Flow Measurements presents new developments, fundamental physics, instrumentation, system architecture, biological effects of ultrasound, and clinical applications that reflect this initiative.

Keeping mathematical derivations to a minimum, this book begins with an overview of the field, the strengths and weaknesses of the technology, and its role relative to other imaging modalities. The book proceeds to describe the fundamental physics involved, a detailed examination of the transducer, conventional imaging approaches, and Doppler measurements. The following chapters explore new developments such as flow, displacement, contrast, harmonic, intracavity, and 4-D imaging. The author concludes by reviewing current status and standards on bioeffects along with a unique chapter on measuring ultrasonic properties of tissues that can be found nowhere else.

Emphasizing the engineering and signal processing aspects of ultrasound technology rather than taking a clinical perspective, Diagnostic Ultrasound: Imaging and Blood Flow Measurements encourages and enables further advances in this established yet dynamic field.

A Practical Guide to 3D Ultrasound (Paperback)

By (author): Reem S. Abu-Rustum

A Practical Guide to 3D Ultrasound was conceived with the beginner in mind. The guide summarizes the basics of 3D sonography in a concise manner and serves as a practical reference for daily practice. It is written in easy-to-read language and contains tables summarizing the step-by-step instructions for the techniques presented.

Following introductory chapters covering the various technical aspects of 3D ultrasound, the book covers clinical applications of 3D ultrasound in the first trimester and for the fetal cardiovascular, genitourinary, and central nervous systems. Clinical applications of fetal anatomical structures such as the skeleton, chest, face, and gastrointestinal tract are also discussed. In addition, the clinical applicability of 3D ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology is explored.

The book is highly illustrated and contains more than 350 ultrasound images, many in color, corresponding to the techniques discussed. A table of practical tips is also included at the end of every chapter. This book is a practical and comprehensive reference for the basics surrounding 3D ultrasound.

There is increasing interest in using ultrasound for assessment of pelvic floor disorders such as voiding dysfunction , pelvic organ prolapse and faecal incontinence. Ultrasound can also be a useful imaging modality for urodynamics and pelvic floor physiotherapy. Whilst ultrasound equipment is widely available around the world many clinicians may not have access to structured training in the technique of pelvic floor imaging and interpretation of images in the context of pelvic floor dysfunction. This book aims to provide the reader with the knowledge and skills to start utilising ultrasound imaging in assessment of pelvic floor disorders. The authors comprise the three surgical disciplines (urology, colorectal surgery and gynaecology) who commonly manage pelvic floor problems and have subspecialty expertise in pelvic floor imaging. They have conducted workshops in Australia, Asia, UK and USA  and are advocates for clinican-performed ultrasound.

Diagnostic imaging is an essential component in the evaluation of the patient with known or suspected respiratory tract disease.  While chest radiography continues to serve as the primary tool for imaging the chest, advances in computed tomography (CT) have led to a variety of applications such as high-resolution CT (HRCT), advanced 3-D airway imaging, and image-guided procedures.

The aim of this book is to deliver a clinically-oriented approach to pulmonary imaging.  Each chapter of the book will provide an organized approach to the different facets of imaging of specific clinical scenarios, focusing on strengths and weaknesses of available imaging tests.  High quality examples of typical imaging findings of specific conditions will supplement the text.

The target readers include practicing internists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and primary care practitioners. Other readers will include respiratory care therapists and medical students.  The proposed cohort of authors represents experts in the field of thoracic radiology.  These authors have experience in thoracic radiology and medical writing, each will deliver a high-quality chapter meeting the aims and scope of this book while addressing the target audience. Aside from the first three chapters, which are introductory materials, each author will be invited to select a clinician with whom they work closely to serve as a co-author in order to provide a chapter that maintains the clinical orientation of this book.

MRI of the Whole Body: An Illustrated Guide for Common Pathologies (Paperback)

By (author): Nikhil Bhuskute, Edward Hoey, Amit Lakkaraju, Kshitij Mankad

The optimal use of magnetic resonance imaging poses a constant challenge as the technology is continually and rapidly advancing. This leaves the MR practitioner, beginner or experienced, in constant need of up-to-date, easily read and well illustrated material presenting the clinical constellation of pathologies as seen by an MRI scanner in such an effective way.

MRI of the Whole Body sets out to educate trainee and experienced radiologists, radiographers and clinicians regarding key sequences for optimal imaging of common pathologies, with simple explanations on the choice of a particular MR sequence. The authors present typical and representative examples with relevant clinical and imaging features to assist a better understanding of these commonly encountered conditions. Every unit begins with a quick anatomy review, and each case is described in a standardised format with a clinical background, key sequences, imaging features, and practical hints as to close differentials and ways to distinguish between them. A text of this nature is essential for all MR practitioners whatever their background: medical, technical or scientific.

Key features:

  • First of its kind as no other book covers all body systems in one volume with demonstration of all key imaging sequences in the commonly diagnosed pathologies
  • Up-to-date sequences described with reasons for choosing a particular sequence for a particular case
  • Simplified relevant MR anatomy preceding each unit
  • Clear high resolution images with appropriate legends
  • Practical hints and tips section included for each pathology - close differentials and what to do next

Written in a simple, lucid format and accompanied by typical illustrations to each case MRI of the Whole Body is an essential guide to understanding the 'what's, 'why's and 'how's of applied MR. It will be of particular value to trainee and practicing radiologists, as well as MR radiographers and radiography students.
