Commended by the British Medical Association, Practical Ultrasound, Second Edition focuses on the scans regularly encountered in a busy ultrasound department and provides everything practitioners need to know to become competent and skilled in scanning.

See What’s New in the Second Edition:

    • Revisions to original chapters incorporating up-to-date techniques and protocols

Beginning with the general principles of ultrasound scanning and a guide to using the ultrasound machine, the book provides step-by-step instructions on how to perform scans supplemented by high-quality images and handy tips.

Organized according to anatomical site, the chapters include a review section on useful anatomy, scan protocol presented step by step, and a section on common pathology.
