About this book

Significant technological advances have produced equipment that allows imaging of the skin with variable frequency ultrasound in previously unseen detail and provides a range of dynamic data that is currently unmatched by any other technology.  Dermatologic Ultrasound with Clinical and Histologic Correlations is a comprehensive introduction to ultrasonography of the skin, nails, and scalp as it relates to the assessment and diagnosis of dermatologic diseases. It provides radiologists, sonographers, dermatologists, and physicians with interest in skin imaging with a concise understanding of the diagnosis of dermatologic conditions through extensive high-resolution gray scale and color Doppler ultrasound images and presents classical correlations of clinical dermatologic lesions with sonographic and histologic findings.  Featuring more than 1700 images, this text-atlas provides an excellent starting point in learning about this topic.      

 

Featuring contributions from world-renowned authorities in the field of superficial ultrasound imaging, the book reviews the technical considerations relating to color Doppler ultrasound of the skin; surveys the dermatologic entities that can be visualized with ultrasound  imaging, such as cutaneous tumors, inflammatory diseases, hemangiomas and vascular malformations, melanoma, nail tumors, scalp diseases and cosmetic conditions; shows common simulators of cutaneous diseases; and discusses protocols for assessing common dermatologic conditions.  Inclusion of clinical overviews, tips, and pitfalls enables a better understanding of the pathologies of the disorders and the methodological approach in assessing these entities.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book details how skin lesions are examined using ultrasound. Clinical photographs are matched with their ultrasound images and the findings on ultrasound are marked and described. The purpose is to popularize the use of ultrasound for diagnosis, evaluating tumor invasion, lymphadenopathy involvement with melanoma, and planning surgical procedures. The audience is radiologists and dermatologists. Dermatologists who do not have prior experience with ultrasonography will find learning how to perform ultrasound and interpret the images challenging.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2014)
