The third edition of this practical reference guide has been updated with a modern, visually attractive design and expanded content. 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.
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.

Color Atlas of Ultrasound Anatomy, Second Edition presents a systematic, step-by-step introduction to normal sectional anatomy of the abdominal and pelvic organs and thyroid gland, essential for recognizing the anatomic landmarks and variations seen on ultrasound. Its convenient, double-page format, with more than 250 image quartets showing ultrasound images on the left and explanatory drawings on the right, is ideal for rapid comprehension. In addition, each image is accompanied by a line drawing indicating the position of the transducer on the body and a 3-D diagram demonstrating the location of the scanning plane in each organ.
More than 60 new ultrasound images in the second edition that were obtained with state-of-the-art equipment for the highest quality resolution
A helpful foundation on standard sectional planes for abdominal scanning, with full-color photographs demonstrating probe placement on the body and diagrams of organs shown
Front and back cover flaps displaying normal sonographic dimensions of organs for easy reference
Covering all relevant anatomic markers, measurable parameters, and normal values, and including both transverse and longitudinal scans, this pocket-sized reference is an essential learning tool for medical students, radiology residents, ultrasound technicians, and medical sonographers.

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.
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.
