The first edition of Clinical Diagnostic Ultrasound provided, in a single volume, a comprehensive grounding in the use of ultrasound for radiologists and sonographers. In this new edition, the Editors have gone to great lengths to ensure that the latest techniques are dealt with in detail. There are many new sections including ultrasound in orthopaedics, investigation of infertility, and ultrasound in guided interventional procedures. The final section of the text is devoted to the latest technical developments in this fast-moving discipline, which includes intravascular ultrasound, three-dimensional ultrasound and guidance on ultrasound contrast agents.

"It is a testament to the British contribution to diagnostic ultrasound and provides a historical perspective and solid grounding in the subject for trainee radiologists. With foundations for a standard British textbook of diagnostic ultrasound now laid, it should be possible to produce an expanded second edition with a much shorter gestation period. This would be received even more favourable".

British Medical Journal

"This is an excellent and comprehensive text book of ultrasound, 600 pages long, with excellent binding and high quality paper and prints"

Irish Medical Journal.

"All in all, this is a definitive one volume exposition of the present situation in the use of ultrasound in clinical diagnosis, and the only drawback with the book is the price. However, it would be an essential addition to any library of any practitioner or diagnostic ultrasound at the present time. It is very good for the learner, for the sonographer and the practising radiologist. In two words, highly recommended"
Australasian Radiology
