Stress Echocardiography: Edition 5

Springer Science & Business Media
Free sample

Over the past twenty years, under the impetus of technological innovations and the drive for cost-effectiveness, stress echocardiography has developed into a well-established technique that is versatile, patient friendly, and relatively inexpensive. This growth has been reflected in the increasing size of past editions of Stress Echocardiography, all of which have been praised for their clarity and scope. This fifth edition of the book has been extensively revised and updated to reflect the further progress achieved over the past few years. The early chapters place the technique within a historical context and describe its pathophysiological basis. Thereafter, all aspects of stress echocardiography are discussed, clearly and in detail, by the distinguished pioneer, Eugenio Picano, and other contributors carefully selected for their expertise in the topic under consideration. Both mainstream and emerging applications are explained, and systematic comparisons with competing and complementary cardiac imaging techniques are provided from a clinically oriented perspective. The text is supported by a large number of high-quality illustrations. This book will be invaluable not only to cardiologists but also to non-experts such as technicians and students.

This spectacular cross-sectional atlas provides a roadmap of normal sonographic anatomy of the musculoskeletal system with optimized images that emphasize spatial relationships and three-dimensional orientation. The book is designed to help novices acquire pattern recognition skills to resolve images into their anatomic components by pairing ultrasound scans with cross-sectional drawings. It will enhance familiarity with musculoskeletal anatomy as it appears on ultrasound imaging for practitioners at any level. Using a sectioned approach, the authors present a visual baseline for evaluating tendon, muscle, ligament, and nerve problems in the upper extremity, lower extremity, and cervical regions. Multiple high resolution views of each structure are accompanied by original illustrations that document the structures in the sonograph and serve as a reference to decipher the image and foster understanding of anatomic relationships and ultrasound appearances.

The atlas is an indispensable tool for clinicians learning diagnostic ultrasound, as they can use the anatomical images for comparisons with their own scans. For the seasoned practitioner, the organized format with high-resolution examples makes this an essential reference for confirming exam findings.

Key Features:

Orients users to anatomical relationships best seen in cross section and necessary to effective utilization of diagnostic ultrasoundOver 150 ultrasound images cover musculoskeletal anatomy from the shoulder to the footEach ultrasound image has a correlative drawing in cross-sectional or regional format with the scanned area depicted within a highlighted frame to enhance understanding of the scanned anatomy.Each image is accompanied by a body icon illustrating the level of the scan for each regionBrief text points and legends emphasize key features and landmarks and offer technical tips for obtaining and interpreting scans.
The ABCs of ultrasound-guided MSK injections

This practical handbook covers all types of ultrasound-guided injections of the joints and tendons. Designed for use primarily by trainees and new practitioners, the guide bridges the gap between the early steps of learning to perform injections and applying that knowledge to patient care. With its concise, user-friendly format and bulleted instructions, the book allows practitioners to quickly access precise information for performing procedures at the point of care. High-resolution photographs illustrate marking and probe placement, while ultrasound images walk you through needle visualization on insertion and at target.

Chapters highlight key information that enables injectors to confidently execute basic skills and also flag potential pitfalls that can cause an adverse outcome. While focused on the most common procedures for peripheral joint problems, the book also covers selected injections for spine disorders and introduces some more advanced ultrasound-guided injections. Indications, suggested medications and dosing, approach (in-plane/out-of-plane), bulleted description of the procedure, lists of structures to avoid, and clinical pearls and tips are provided for each injection.

Written by expert authors, this guide will be indispensable to new practitioners building proficiency and more experienced clinicians who wish to refresh their knowledge performing ultrasound-guided procedures.

Key Features:

Provides expert guidance for students, residents, fellows and attendings looking to add MSK ultrasound to their practice

Covers the basics for most common peripheral joint and peripheral nerve procedures and introduces some more advanced spine injections

Organized in bullet points for quick access to information

Includes step-by-step procedural photographs and ultrasound pictures to illustrate each injection
