1 Technical Considerations, Equipment, and Physics of Duplex Sonography.- 2 Duplex Sonography of the Cerebrovascular System.- 3 Cardiac Doppler.- 4 Duplex Sonography of the Abdomen.- 5 Duplex Evaluation of Fetoplacental and Uteroplacental Circulation.- 6 Duplex Sonography of Peripheral Arteries.- 7 Duplex Sonography of the Lower Extremity Venous System.
Duplex Sonography is the first comprehensive text written about this modality. The book offers the reader detailed information about all major uses of duplex and is introduced by a brief chapter on the physical principles of doppler ultrasound as it relates to duplex scanning. Duplex Sonography is intended to provide relevant information on all aspects of the technique, ranging from the basics of performing the examination to the features of sometimes complex pathological states. The book is intended for anyone interested in non-invasive vascular diagnosis including radiologists, vascular surgeons and ultrasound/peripheral vascular technologists. Other groups may find individual chapters appealing: carotid/cardiac sonography for cardiologists, fetal sonography for obstetricians or carotid sonography for neurologists. Each chapter is not only a guide to duplex evaluation, but also provides valuable information about vascular dynamics of the organ system under discussion. Physicians or technologists reading this book should come away with a well-rounded background in state-of-the-art duplex sonography and will undoubtedly discover new possibilities for using this non-invasive vascular technique.
