Free sample

This workbook offers structured, course-like learning, and just like an instructor in an ultrasound course, it guides you systematically through the individual organ systems. The accompanying videos demonstrate basic anatomy for ultrasound, optimum transducer positioning, and the interaction between transducer position and monitor display, allowing you to experience the learning points in real time for a deeper, visual understanding.

Highlights of the third edition:

  • Multiple-exposure photos demonstrate the dynamics of handling the transducer
  • Triple-image sets clearly show transducer positioning, the ultrasound image, and an anatomic diagram of the site
  • Numbered structures on the anatomic diagrams help you learn new information and test your retention at any time. The legend on the back-cover flap folds out for quick reference. Each structure is referred to by the same number throughout the book
  • Numerous quiz images at the end of each chapter give you an opportunity to test your knowledge
  • Physical principles are explained concisely with clear, accessible diagrams
  • Various tips and tricks make it easier for beginners to get started

Ultrasound Teaching Manual is the perfect introduction to diagnostic ultrasound if you

  • are taking an ultrasound course and would like to prepare yourself systematically for this course or consolidate what you have learned
  • are a physician or student who wants to become familiar with diagnostic ultrasound in independent study; or
  • are a resident in internal medicine, radiology, surgery, gynecology, anesthesiology, or pediatrics who wants to solidify your ultrasound experience.

Fully master the basic principles and applications of abdominal ultrasound Designed to be kept close at hand during an actual ultrasound examination, Abdominal Ultrasound: Step by Step, second edition, provides the tools, techniques and training to increase your knowledge and confidence in interpreting ultrasound findings. Its clear, systematic approach shows you how to recognize all important ultrasound phenomena (especially misleading artifacts), locate and delineate the upper abdominal organs, explain suspicious findings, apply clinical correlations, and easily distinguish between normal and abnormal images. This second edition includes the new Sono Consultant, a systematic, two-part framework for helping the examiner evaluate specific ultrasound findings and make an informed differential diagnosis. In the first part, Ultrasound Findings, the examiner notes an abnormality at ultrasound, lists all findings, and suggests possible interpretations. In the second section, Clinical Presentation, the examiner starts off with a possible diagnosis (e.g. heart failure, splenomegaly) and then extracts the maximum possible information available on ultrasound to confirm, support, or differentiate the diagnosis. Features:More than 670 ultrasound images and 240 drawings that enhance the text3-D diagrams that depict complex anatomical structures and spatial relationshipsClear and concise learning units for easy mastery of materialProviding a logical, structured foundation for performing a successful ultrasound examination, this practice-oriented teaching guide is essential for all students and residents building their skills in ultrasonography.
 This invaluable book for the electromyographer dispenses the latest techniques detailing methods of intramuscular electrode placement. The author examines the basic principles in electromyography (EMG) and includes updated information for the appendicular and axial muscles. It is divided into 14 sections organized by anatomical region: the muscles of the hand, forearm, arm, shoulder girdle, foot, leg, thigh, pelvis, hip joint, perineal region, paraspinal region, abdominal wall, the intercostals and diaphragm regions, along with the muscles innervated by cranial nerves. This information includes the innervations and attachments of each muscle, how to position the patient for examination, the appropriate site for insertion of the electrode, the depth of insertion for the electrode, and the action that the patient should perform to activate the muscle. The descriptions of the techniques used for rarely examined muscles are sufficient for a clinician to have the confidence needed to perform the procedure. Common errors in electrode placement and clinically relevant comments are illustrated and discussed, including cross-sectional illustrations on the appendicular muscles. A particularly useful inclusion is “Pitfalls” that describes which muscle the electrode will record if the needle is placed too deep, not deep enough, or not at the location described. The text contains a useful appendix, providing dermatomes of the limb and trunk, cutaneous innervations of the head, and excellent illustrations of both the brachial plexus and the lumbo-sacral-coccygeal plexus. The appendix also contains a useful table listing all muscles that are presented in the text with innervations from the peripheral nerve to the mixed spinal nerve root. Well organized, clearly and concisely written, this book remains a learning tool and excellent reference for electromyographers and for healthcare practitioners who are expanding their practice skills to include diagnostic EMG, as well as for graduate students who use EMG as part of their research.
