This extensively illustrated guide is the first English-language text to present a comprehensive analysis of the sonographic aspects of abdominal transplantation. The book provides full coverage of the entire process, from initial assessment to the peri-operative period and long-term follow-up. It gives you essential information on color doppler ultrasound and other imaging techniques which are crucial to the early detection of complications.

With each chapter written by a leading expert in that particular subspecialty, the book begins with general background information and techniques, then goes on to address imaging procedures used in transplantation for the liver, kidneys, pancreas, and small bowel. Ultrasound, as opposed to CT or MRI, is the primary imaging modality utilized for both preliminary investigations and interventional procedures.

Ultrasound of Abdominal Transplantation is an invaluable professional resource for all radiologists, sonographers, surgeons, and physicians who need an insight into techniques of transplant ultrasound as well as an overview of the related medical and surgical management issues.
