About this book


"Noninvasive Cerebrovascular 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.

From the reviews: “This book covers the full spectrum of noninvasive cerebrovascular diagnostics from the basics of ultrasound to the many clinical applications of ultrasound in vascular surgery. … Vascular surgeons, surgical residents and fellows, radiologists, and vascular technologists will find this book very useful. … This is an excellent book for vascular personnel, in practice and in training. It is up to date, referencing recent literature. Other books cover similar material, but this one is a nice read with clear explanations.” (Mark L. Keldahl, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2010)
