This text provides surgeons with an introduction to the use of state-of-the-art ultrasound technology in the diagnosis and treatment of surgical diseases. Coverage begins with a review of ultrasound principles, instrumentation, and techniques. The next group of chapters describes the normal and pathologic ultrasound appearances of the abdomen (particularly the pancreas, gastrointestinal tract, and spleen); the hepatobiliary tract; the colon and rectum; the breast; and the peripheral vascular system. A major portion of the book details the applications of interventional, intraoperative, laparoscopic, and endoscopic ultrasound. Also included is a chapter on the use of ultrasound in the management of trauma. More than 350 illustrations complement the text throughout.
