About this book

This essential volume provides detailed information on all key aspects of tumor imaging with diverse sonographic techniques. In the first part, the reader will find aspects on the main issues in clinical oncology, including screening, detection, characterization and staging of malignant neoplasms, assessment of response to treatment, and follow-up. Then, the examination technique and the main findings of all ultrasound modalities (gray-scale ultrasound, spectral Doppler, color-Doppler, power-Doppler, and contrast-enhanced ultrasound) are described, with special reference to clues and pitfalls in the process of diagnosis. Subsequently all clinical scenarios where ultrasound plays a major role are described in detail. The last part of the book depicts the main US-guided, diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.

Radiologists and non-radiologists performing ultrasound studies will find the book useful in their clinical practice.

Reviews

From the reviews: “This book starts with a clinical question or problem and illustrates how ultrasound can be used to provide information. … It provides a unique means of portraying ultrasound pathology. General radiologists are the intended audience. … This excellent book can be used for quick reference as one encounters an unknown mass or clinical problem.” (Julie Sossaman, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2009)
