An interdisciplinary guide to color duplex sonography organized by anatomic region
The indications for vascular color duplex sonography (CDS) have expanded in recent years due to the availability of power Doppler, B-flow, ultrasound contrast agents, 3D reconstruction techniques and fusion with other imaging modalities. CDS enables close-interval follow-ups after interventional procedures with improved prognoses. Edited by Reinhard Kubale, Hubert Stiegler, and Hans-Peter Weskott, Vascular Color Duplex Ultrasound starts with the basic principles of diagnostic ultrasound physics and technology, followed by invaluable tips on equipment settings, possible artifacts, and limitations; hemodynamic essentials; and the use of ultrasound contrast agents. Subsequent chapters organized by anatomic region provide updated coverage on all peripheral and abdominal arterial and venous vascular regions; microcirculation and tumor perfusion; kidney and liver disease; the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in biliary, intestinal, splenic, and pediatric diseases; and novel/future techniques.
• Contributions from interdisciplinary experts in angiology, neurology, radiology, vascular surgery, gastroenterology, nephrology, phlebology, rheumatology, laser medicine, and physics
• In-depth guidance on examination techniques, findings, and potential pitfalls and how to avoid them
• A wealth of comparative CT, MRI, and angiography CDS images and 37 videos enhance understanding of impacted anatomy, and the ability to master techniques and make accurate diagnoses
