Clinical Ultrasound: Case Reviews

Ultrasound is a demanding speciality requiring an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physics and pathology as well as many hours of practical scanning experience. Trainees are required to attain high levels of competency in a relatively short period of time and ultrasound images play an ever increasing role in the radiology fellowship examinations. This book has been written to give trainees exposure to a wide range of ultrasound pathologies and has been compiled in a question-and-answer format to aid with exam preparation. In most instances there is a specific answer, but in some a limited differential diagnosis is required. Selected images with typical accompanying case histories are provided and are followed by a labelled image and summary of the salient diagnostic features of that condition. Some 'hints' are included to aid with day-to-day practice. Although specifically aimed at radiology trainees, this series of case reviews will also be useful to sonographers, physicians, medical students and anyone with an interest in ultrasound.
