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.
