Ultrasound nowadays is a well established diagnostic and therapeutic tool in diseases within
several medical specialities. Furthermore, technical improvement of ultrasound equipment
and continuous basic and clinical ultrasound research have increased the use of ultrasound
within new fields.
In gastroenterology, ultrasound has been used for several decades to perform B-mode
imaging of the abdominal organs. However, the development of new techniques, e.g.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Diagnostic pediatric ultrasound" presents the following contents: Examining the child and creating a child friendly environment, physics and artifacts, neonatal cranial ultrasonography, spine, neck, mediastinum, pleura and thorax, peritoneal cavity and retroperitoneal space, liver and biliary system.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Diagnostic pediatric ultrasound" presents the following contents: Spleen, pediatric intestinal ultrasonography, pancreas, kidneys, adrenal glands, sonography of the female genital tract, male genital tract, musculoskeletal ultrasound, ultrasound guided inter ventional procedures - biopsy and drainage
Everyday, millions of medical images are produced worldwide, to aid diagnosis and treat‐
ment of patients. A typical patient’s diagnostic work-up is often incomplete without a medi‐
cal imaging technique. The various techniques for achieving this have continued to evolve,
from the basics through the sophisticated and now to the abstract.
Ultrasound has become an integral component of obstetric care, with the vast majority of patients having at least one ultrasound examination during pregnancy. From the determination of early pregnancy and gestational age to the evaluation of fetal growth and well being, ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool for the practicing obstetrician. Recent advances in obstetric ultrasonography have increased its importance in managing pregnancies at risk for aneuploidy, structural anomalies, preterm delivery, and blood flow abnormalities. ...
It is well-known that, in the past few decades, imaging techniques,
and in particular ultrasonography, have led to great advances in
clinical hepatology. In fact, the widespread use of these techniques
resulted in the clinical discovery of hepatocellular carcinoma and
other liver tumours. Hepatocellular carcinoma was practically
unknown to the clinician before the advent of diagnostic ultrasound.
We are pleased to present the Tenth Edition of Veterinary
Medicine, 45 years since the first'Blood and Henderson' Veterinary
Medicine was published in 1960. Because the demand for this
book continues undiminished, we assume that we have a
philosophy, a format and a price that is attractive and meets the
demands of undergraduate veterinary students and graduate
veterinarians working in the field of large-animal medicine. For
this edition, Significant changes were needed to keep up to date
with the increasingly rapid expansion of knowledge about the
diseases of large animals.
Thyroid and parathyroid diseases are among the most frequent conditions we have to
deal with in a clinical setting. Both nodular and autoimmune diseases affecting these
glands have increased remarkably over the past decades. The widespread use of crosssectional
imaging and the introduction of neck ultrasonography have led to a thyroid
nodule epidemics and the diagnostic of neck lesions in half of the population.
Consequently, many patients with microscopic papillary thyroid cancers of uncertain
clinical significance are submitted to surgeries that may, perhaps, be unnecessary....
Withholding further diagnostic testing and anticoagulant treatment in those patients with an unlikely clinical probability and a normal D-dimer level, which constitutes 30–50% of all referred patients, is safe. The remaining patients need to undergo (repeated) compression ultrasonography. An alternative approach is to perform a whole-leg imaging test on the day of referral. The advantage of this approach is that it eliminates the need for a repeat test (and may even obviate the probability assessment and D-dimer testing).
