About this book


"Noninvasive Peripheral Arterial Diagnosis" is the newest definitive text on the current techniques used in assessing vascular disorders. Readers will receive authoritative information and will be guided through the establishment and accreditation of a vascular laboratory and introduced to the physics of diagnostic testing. Chapters, written by selected experts, comprehensively explain the use of ultrasound in diagnosing cerebrovascular, renovascular, visceral ischemia and peripheral arterial disease as well as venous disorders and deep abdominal vascular conditions. Noninvasive Vascular Diagnosis contains over 300 illustrations, many of them in colour. Due to the special sections which give clinical correlations, this book will be invaluable to physicians who treat vascular disorders, surgeons, cardiologists, vascular radiologists and the vascular laboratory staff.
