This is a recently-updated version of Frances Barr's introductory text from 1990. There are numerous contributions from leading experts. The book focuses on image interpretation, the key to all ultrasound. There are six contributors to this edition, all boarded in some aspect of internal or imaging medicine.

The photos of the ultrasound images are accompanied by drawings that explain what the viewer is seeing. These illustrations are excellent, and could only be bested by watching the procedure live, with an expert explaining the images to you.

The chapters are:

  • Principles of Diagnostic Ultrasound
  • Ultrasound Artifacts
  • Indications and Technique
  • Imaging of the General Abdomen
  • The Liver and Spleen
  • Gastrointestinal Tract including Pancreas
  • Urinary Tract
  • Imaging of the Reproductive Tract
  • Imaging the Heart
  • Doppler Ultrasound
  • Imaging of the Neck
  • Imaging of the Musculoskeletal System
  • Imaging of the Eye and Orbit
  • Ultrasound of Exotic Species

The last chapter on exotics seems to be the shortest, and not all points are illustrated with an ultrasound image (some are only drawings). You will find the occasional image a little dark or hard to read, but most of the time the images are excellent, and the overall quality of the images reflects the improvements in this technique in the past few years. Contains more than 100 black/white photographs, plus a color plate section of Doppler images.
