The new 4th edition of Don Ridgway’s unabashedly practical and famously unique how-to guide to vascular scanning will astound and delight both beginners and veterans who are cross-training in vascular ultrasound or earning CME credit. All of the features that have made this book so popular and useful are updated in full color–how to scan all of the vascular systems, numerous scanning exercises and quizzes, Other Vascular Diagnostic Modalities, Those Darn Doppler Angles, The Important and Somewhat Tricky Bifurcation Maneuver, Seven Tips toward Good Probemanship, and Getting Stuck: A Word about the Flop Sweats. There are more than 700 illustrations in all, full-color technical and anatomic illustrations, 150+ diagnostic images, Doppler waveforms, and scores of schematics, cross-sections, and clinical photographs. As praise for previous editions suggests, you won’t find anything else like this stepwise guide for the relative novice: extremely reader-friendly, lavishly illustrated, and focused squarely on real-world skill building. SDMS approved for 18 CME credits.
