Project Description

To present sonography in the context of anatomy and clinical practice. This book offers highly visual, practical coverage of the ultrasound experience and includes important structures that are most frequently encountered in daily practice.  With over 175 original atlas plates created, it provides students with a solid foundation in regional ultrasound anatomy through figures paired with concise text.  Each figure highlights the relevant anatomy on each ultrasound image, depicts the proper patient position, probe placement, and includes corresponding cadaver photographs or anatomical illustrations to further aid with orientation and structure identification. The progressive nature of the figures moving from ultrasound image to didactic illustration facilitates comprehension.
