For doctors and students who wish to learn ultrasonography concisely yet comprehensively. The authors present the subject both systematically and practically, and with the facility of quick reference in mind, making generous use of flow-charts, tables and teaching-points. All general aspects of diagnostic ultrasound are covered, concentrating on those disorders encountered in the daily routine of scanning, but also referring to rarer conditions which need to be considered in differential diagnosis.
