Abstract

This chapter is focused on how to use the ultrasonography to detect the peripheral vessels including carotid artery, upper limb arteries and veins, lower limb arteries and veins. The beginner can learn how to perform the examination from different sections. We can observe the vessels by two-dimensional ultrasound, pulsed Doppler, and color Doppler flow images.
