Technology has revolutionized the practice of surgery. As part of this change, surgeon-performed ultrasound has become one of the most integral parts of the surgeon’s clinical practice. It is not surprising to observe this current surge of interest in ultrasound by general surgeons because surgeons are highly motivated to provide the best possible care for their patients, including the use of the latest technologic advances in diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, ultrasound equipment is compact, affordable and user-friendly so that extensive training is not required to master focused ultrasound techniques. Cost containment initiatives by patients, clinicians and third-party payers have encouraged the use of modalities, such as ultrasound, that save time and money. Considering the unique qualities of ultrasound...noninvasive, portable, rapid and easily repeatable..., ultrasound is especially suitable to the surgeon’s practice. The FAST has replaced central venous pressure measurements for the detection of hemopericardium and diagnostic peritoneal lavage for the detection of hemoperitoneum. Bedside ultrasound detects a pleural effusion so well in critically ill patients that fewer lateral decubutis X-rays are ordered. Ultrasound directed biopsy of breast lesions is a common office procedure. Laparoscopic ultrasound allows for tumor staging without formal celiotomy while ultrasound is an adjunct to many hepatic and pancreatic procedures. Endoscopic and endorectal ultrasound have added a new dimension to the assessment and treatment of many gastrointestinal lesions. Color-flow duplex imaging and endoluminal ultrasound have significantly expanded the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of vascular imaging.
We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
