TEXTBOOK : APPLIED ASPECTS OF ULTRASONOGRAPHY IN HUMANS

ULTRASONOGRAPHY

Edited by Philip Ainslie .

198 pages . 

This book is devoted to some novel and applied aspects of ultrasound, which has shown rapid developments in the last decade. Written by international experts, this publication provides the reader with the present knowledge and future research directions of diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound and spectroscopy. Focused topics include Duplex ultrasound, transcranial color Duplex, MRA- guided Doppler ultrasonography and near-infrared spectroscopy. New directions in the use and application of transcranial and color Duplex ultrasound are provided, as well as the use of ultrasound and arterial stiffness for measuring human vascular health and circulatory control. Novel use of ultrasound for the detection of intra-cardiac and intra-pulmonary shunts is also described along with its utility for the assessment of gastric emptying.
I hope this edition will be useful and stimulate further use and research in applied aspects of ultrasonography.
