Book Description

This lavishly illustrated pocket guide will help you to grasp the connection between three-dimensional organ systems and their two-dimensional representation in ultrasound imaging and teach you how to interpret ultrasound images for every patient, regardless of differences in density, body fat, or age.

Through dynamic illustrations and clarifying text, it allows you to:

  • Recognize, name, and confidently locate all organs, landmarks, and anatomical details of the abdomen
  • Examine all standard planes, including transverse and longitudinal scans for regions of sonographic interest (including the thyroid gland)
  • Understand topographic relationships of organs and structures in all three spatial planes

  • This invaluable text is ideal for the beginner, providing a rapid orientation to all key topics. It includes:

  • Over 250 fully labeled image quartets, each showing: the preferred location of the transducer on the body; the resulting image; a labeled drawing of the image, keyed to anatomic structures; and a small 3-D drawing showing the location of the scanning plane in the organ
  • Body markers with information on transducer handling and positioning for each sonogram
  • Over 250 rules of thumb and key concepts
  • All relevant landmarks, measurable parameters, and normal values

  • Packed with beautiful graphics and precise text, Color Atlas of Ultrasound Anatomy is the essential resource that anyone involved in ultrasound radiography needs.
