Liver Ultrasound

An up-to-date discussion of modern liver ultrasound techniques, combining hepatological and radiological perspectives into one stand-alone resource.

In Liver Ultrasound: From Basics to Advanced Applications, a team of distinguished experts delivers an in-depth textbook on how to perform liver ultrasound and interpret common and uncommon clinical findings. The authors also walk readers through the nuances of ultrasonic and parametric features, from both a radiological and hepatological perspective, in differentiating the multitude of liver conditions. They also discuss clinical evaluations and how to use more advanced and currently evolving techniques.

Readers will experience well-illustrated and clear ultrasound images while also getting access to a complimentary website that features numerous videos which integrate the book's modern and multidisciplinary approach. The book also includes:
* A thorough introduction to the basics of ultrasound, as well as ultrasound scanners and knobology
* Comprehensive explanations on how to perform a liver ultrasound, including routine practicalities, discussions of normal liver anatomy, normal variants and advanced Doppler techniques
* Practical discussions of focal liver lesions, including their characterization and detection and how contrast enhanced ultrasound plays a pivotal role
* A clinical overview on the use of point of care ultrasound in liver disease as well as the use of ultrasound in liver related infectious diseases, biliary disorders and pediatric liver disease
* An extensive overview on the use of ultrasound and specific findings in liver transplantation
* The role of ultrasound in chronic liver disease, vascular liver diseases and interventional procedures, as well as discussions on advancing technologies namely shearwave elastography, attenuation imaging and fusion

Perfect for all who perform liver sonography namely, hepatologists, radiologists, internal and emergency medicine physicians and sonographers. Liver Ultrasound: From Basics to Advanced Applications will also benefit trainees from all these specialties.
