)-- In well-trained hands, ultrasound is an invaluable and relatively inexpensive guidance tool. As a result, it is standard practice to utilize this technology for invasive procedures. Ultrasound-Guided Procedures, recently published by Thieme, is a practical reference for the full range of common and complex ultrasound-guided procedures frequently performed in clinical practice.
"In this book, we provide a point-by-point, practical how-to check list for ultrasound-guided interventions and percutaneous access," explains authors Vikram S. Dogra, MD, University of Rochester School of Medicine, Rochester, New York.
This in-depth text, written by renowned specialists, includes detailed information on how to perform ultrasound-guided biopsies and drainage as well as how to use the technology for interventional procedures. More than 600 images assist in clarifying complex concepts, and work in tandem with the material presented by the authors.
"We hope that this book provides a valuable contribution to the literature on percutaneous procedures and a pleasant read at all levels during and after diagnostic and/or interventional radiology training," states author Wael E.A. Saad, MBBCh, University of Virginia.
