This book is a practically-oriented guide for all those learning and performing basic diagnostic ultrasound of the urinary tract. It is divided into three sections, with the first part examining the basics of ultrasound physics, equipment, artefacts, and safety. The second part covers the practicalities of performing an ultrasound examination. With practical tips for particular areas, this part is well illustrated with line diagrams to explain probe positioning and movements. The third part, covering clinical sonography, illustrates the various normal variants and the abnormal clinical findings detectable with ultrasound.
Liberal use of key points, summary boxes, tip boxes, and "Dos & Donts" in highlighted boxes enhances the practical nature of this well-illustrated and easy-to-use book. Each chapter starts with key learning objectives, tested at the end of each section. It will be useful for all resident, trainees and qualified urologists, particularly those performing ‘Office Urology’, and for urology nurses and technicians.
