This text offers the student a firm grounding in normal anatomy and physiology from an ultrasound perspective. After covering anatomy and physiology in the first half of each chapter, it then presents a wealth of ultrasound images to increase the reader's comfort with normal anatomy as it appears during scanning. Most images are accompanied by labeled drawings with detailed legends that explain what the reader is supposed to notice on the ultrasound scans. Instructor resources are available; please contact your Elsevier sales representative for details.Detailed, labeled line drawings accompany most sonograms to provide reinforcement of what the student should notice on the scan.1,200 images spread over 528 pages ensure students gain a thorough, visual understanding of the field.Introduction to Specialty Sonography section gives students an understanding of career options and an understanding of sonographers' work in those areas.Abdominal aorta, inferior vena cava and portal venous systems chapters have been moved ahead of the abdominal organ chapters to reflect the order in which most instructors prefer to teach this material.250 new scans and accompanying line drawings prepare students for the latest equipment, and help relevant anatomy "pop" into view.New chapter on abdominal vascular technology helps students understand the effects of vascular stenosis on health, enabling them to better scan and understand why they're imaging the aorta and vessels of the abdominal organs.Two new chapters on 3D ultrasound and ultrasound assisted special procedures ensure students are prepared for the latest in technology and opportunities in the sonography field.Color images now appear in four distinct inserts, so students can flip more easily to the color images to compare the textual information and black and white images with the distinct clarity given by the color images.

From the Publisher: Gain a firm understanding of normal anatomy and physiology from a sonographic perspective! Sonography: Introduction to Normal Structure and Function, 3rd Edition shows normal anatomy as it appears during scanning, with labeled drawings explaining what you should notice. With this knowledge, you will be able to accurately identify sonographic pathology and abnormalities. Over 1,200 illustrations include the latest and best images from the newest ultrasound equipment, including 3D and 4D images. Written by expert educators Reva Curry and Betty Tempkin, this book provides complete preparation for the challenges you'll encounter in the clinical environment. Over 1,200 images provide a thorough, visual understanding of sonography. Detailed, labeled line drawings accompany most sonograms to highlight and outline the anatomic structures that are visible in the image. Physiology background allows you to correlate images with physiologic processes and know which images need to be captured for the diagnosis of pathology. Sonographic appearance and applications sections help you develop skills in obtaining the correct images and knowing why those images are so important. Correlation with laboratory and other studies helps you connect your results with the total patient picture of disease analysis. A consistent emphasis on vasculature helps in the diagnosis of arterial disease. Introduction to Specialty Sonography section discusses important specialty areas such as neonatal brain, pediatric and adult echocardiography, and vascular technology. A companion workbook reinforces the textbook with exercises offering additional practice in identifying anatomical structures and applying knowledge. Sold separately. Thorough coverage of the newest ultrasound techniques includes: Upper extremity vascular imaging; Neonatal hip and spine; 3D and 4D imaging; Female pelvis scanning; Thoracocentesis and paracentesis; Doppler techniques for fetal ductus venosus, aorta and MCA imaging; Quality control protocol; Scanning planes and sectional anatomy; Sterile technique. 80 new sonograms demonstrate the latest and best images from state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment, including 3D and 4D images. New Embryological Development chapter explains how the different body systems of a fetus develop. New Penis and Scrotum chapter provides the latest information on male reproductive scanning. Important clinical information such as universal precautions and knobology has been moved from the appendix into the main text. Definitions of key terms begin each chapter. Summary tables for structure location and measurements are included for easy reference.… (more)
