Here's comprehensive, in-depth coverage of the rapidly expanding field of non-invasive vascular diagnosis. Noted experts in vascular surgery, interventional radiology, cardiology, and vascular medicine explore the best approaches for vascular imaging of cerebrovascular disease, peripheral atherosclerotic occlusive disease, intra-abdominal occlusive disease, venous disorders, and aneurysms. They describe all of today's imaging modalities and their applications for diagnosis as well as their increasingly important intraoperative and interventional roles. The book is organized into three parts. The first part covers some fundamental issues related to the vascular laboratory and principles of vascular diagnosis. The second part has five sections concerned with imaging the various regions of the body. The third part contains a collection of miscellaneous topics such as coding and reimbursement and database maintenance.

Key Features

  • Examines all of today's cutting-edge technologies and techniques, including cerebrovascular color-flow scanning · laser Doppler and transcutaneous oxygen measurement · MR and CT angiography · transcranial Doppler · guiding endovascular interventions with color-flow scanning · vein graft evaluation · imaging modalities for the diagnosis of endoleaks · and ultrasound-guided filter placement.
  • Features a full-color design throughout and wealth of images and illustrations.
  • Reviews the basic and practical science that underlies the technology, such as ultrasound physics and instrumentation.
  • Addresses vital issues such as qualifications and competence of vascular laboratory personnel, quality assurance, and certification of the vascular laboratory as well as coding and reimbursement.
  • Serves as an excellent reference for both practice and exam preparation.
