Sonography: Introduction to Normal Structure and Function

This text offers the student a firm grounding in normal anatomy and physiology from an ultrasound perspective. After covering anatomy and physiology in the first half of each chapter, it then presents a wealth of ultrasound images to increase the reader's comfort with normal anatomy as it appears during scanning.
