An English translation of L’Echographie Générale en Réanimation was necessary,

Ultrasound has, it is true, gained a more important place in emergency and
intensive care medicine.Technological evolution alone does not explain this popularity.
Technology develops extremely quickly, but we have always suggested –
and continue to do so – that before rushing to the most modern ultrasound units,
we should already make optimal use of so-called obsolete devices.
Ultrasound is one of the most widely used imaging
modalities in pediatric radiology and is set to continue
to grow and develop as computing and
equipment improves and new applications become
available. Children are ideally suited to ultrasound,
since their low levels of body fat contribute to
ultrasound images of exquisite detail.
This book is intended as a practical starting
point for radiologists, sonographers and other
medical healthcare professionals undertaking ultrasound
examinations in children, providing all necessary
normative charts and guidelines on
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.
In recent years, technology has revolutionized the practice of surgery. As
part of this change, surgeon-performed ultrasound has become one of the
most integral parts of the surgeon’s clinical practice. It is not surprising to
observe this current surge of interest in ultrasound by general surgeons because
surgeons are highly motivated to provide the best possible care for
their patients, including the use of the latest technologic advances in diagnosis
