Atlas of Fetal Echocardiography has attempted to explain the concepts of fetal cardiac imaging in a simplified manner. The book is amply illustrated starting from basic embryology to the diagnosis of structural defects. The basics of Doppler has also been covered. The layout of the book has been well designed for easy reading. I hope the authors will explore this area in greater depths in the years to come and further simplify this complex subject. Ultrasonography and Echocardiography have become the two most common tools for the obstetricians in their day-to-day practice. Their use was previously limited to just biometry and routine detection of anomalies. Nowadays, lots of research and development has been going on in this particular field. With the advent of color Doppler high resolution machine STIC and Continuous Wave Doppler, it has become very easy to scan fetal heart and to detect anomalies. In the routine ultrasonography the sonographer aims at detecting something which is not normal in fetal heart. On the other hand, fetal echocardiography, makes us PASSS in our efforts (Position, Axis, Size, Symmetry and Squeeze). Advancements in technology as well as increased capability of sonographer and sonologist has expanded the use of USG as a diagnostic tool for evaluation of fetal anatomy and fetal heart. In this atlas, we have tried to explain the basic use of these new modalities and we are sure that it would be extremely useful to the beginners entering in this field of diagnostic procedures as well as to those more experienced obstetricians by providing them something new.
Provides the Doppler ultrasound user with a firm grasp of its underlying physical principles.
This book provides a sound theoretical basis for clinical users of Doppler ultrasound, and includes an up-to-date survey of the many new innovations that have been described as potentially useful for detecting, measuring and imaging blood flow.
This latest edition provides a major review of the technical literature on Doppler ultrasound plus two new chapters on Colour Flow Scanners and emerging Doppler techniques. In order to reflect the now widespread use of colour Doppler systems, the number of colour illustrations has substantially increased. The range and breadth of topics covered, ensures that this is an essential reference for Doppler enthusiasts whether from a medical, scientific or technical discipline.
Combining over 1200 clinical images, 300 color illustrations and concise, bulleted text, Core Radiology is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource for learning, reference and board review. The clearly-formatted design integrates the images and accompanying text, facilitating streamlined and efficient learning. All subjects covered by the American Board of Radiology Core Exam are included: • Breast imaging, including interventions and MRI • Neuroimaging, including brain, head and neck, and spine • Musculoskeletal imaging, including knee and shoulder MRI • Genitourinary imaging, including pelvic MRI • Gastrointestinal imaging, including MRI and MRCP • General, vascular, gynecological and obstetrical ultrasound • Nuclear imaging, including PET-CT and nuclear cardiology • Thoracic imaging • Cardiovascular imaging, including cardiac CT and MRI • Pediatric imaging • Interventional radiology • Radiological physics review, contrast media and reactions. Essential reading for radiology residents reviewing for boards, as well as practicing radiologists seeking a practical up-to-date guide to the field.
All healthcare professionals practising ultrasound in a clinical setting should receive accredited training in the principles and practice of ultrasound scanning. This second edition of Diagnostic Ultrasound: Physics and Equipment provides a comprehensive introduction to the physics, technology and safety of ultrasound equipment, with high quality ultrasound images and diagrams throughout. It covers all aspects of the field at a level intended to meet the requirements of UK sonography courses. New to this edition: • Updated descriptions of ultrasound technology, quality assurance and safety. • Additional chapters dedicated to 3D ultrasound, contrast agents and elastography. • New glossary containing definitions of over 500 terms. The editors and contributing authors are all authorities in their areas, with contributions to the scientific and professional development of ultrasound at national and international level.
Radiology Fundamentals is a concise introduction to the dynamic field of radiology for medical students, non-radiology house staff, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, radiology assistants, and other allied health professionals. The goal of the book is to provide readers with general examples and brief discussions of basic radiographic principles and to serve as a curriculum guide, supplementing a radiology education and providing a solid foundation for further learning. Introductory chapters provide readers with the fundamental scientific concepts underlying the medical use of imaging modalities and technology, including ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear medicine. The main scope of the book is to present concise chapters organized by anatomic region and radiology sub-specialty that highlight the radiologist’s role in diagnosing and treating common diseases, disorders, and conditions. Highly illustrated with images and diagrams, each chapter in Radiology Fundamentals begins with learning objectives to aid readers in recognizing important points and connecting the basic radiology concepts that run throughout the text. It is the editors’ hope that this valuable, up-to-date resource will foster and further stimulate self-directed radiology learning—the process at the heart of medical education.
Applied Radiological Anatomy for Medical Students, first published in 2007, is the definitive atlas of human anatomy, utilizing the complete range of imaging modalities to describe normal anatomy and radiological findings. Initial chapters describe all imaging techniques and introduce the principles of image interpretation. These are followed by comprehensive sections on each anatomical region. Hundreds of high-quality radiographs, MRI, CT and ultrasound images are included, complemented by concise, focussed text. Many images are accompanied by detailed, fully labelled line illustrations to aid interpretation. Written by leading experts and experienced teachers in imaging and anatomy, Applied Radiological Anatomy for Medical Students is an invaluable resource for all students s of anatomy and radiology.
