Color Atlas of Ultrasound Anatomy, Second Edition presents a systematic, step-by-step introduction to normal sectional anatomy of the abdominal and pelvic organs and thyroid gland, essential for recognizing the anatomic landmarks and variations seen on ultrasound. Its convenient, double-page format, with more than 250 image quartets showing ultrasound images on the left and explanatory drawings on the right, is ideal for rapid comprehension. In addition, each image is accompanied by a line drawing indicating the position of the transducer on the body and a 3-D diagram demonstrating the location of the scanning plane in each organ.
Ultrasound scanning yields a series of sectional images. The basis for interpreting the examination is the individual sectional image. At first sight, it is easy to be confused by the variable appearance of an ultrasound scan of the same region in different patients. This has numerous causes, including differences in density, body fat, age-related differences, overlying gas, and artifacts. In most cases the apparent discrepancies are not based on true anatomical differences. When a systematic scanning routine is closely followed, series of sectional images can be obtained in every patient with remarkable consistency. Even if the images themselves vary, the anatomical relationships that are demonstrated remain constant.
While some excellent atlases have been published on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, it is curious that no one (to the author’s knowledge) has taken the trouble to create a similar atlas of
sectional anatomy for abdominal ultrasound. The present atlas attempts to fill this gap. In particular, the author hopes to provide the beginner with a comprehensive guide to the initially confusing world of sonographic anatomy.
Many have helped in the creation of this book. I wish to thank Dr. Hartwig Schöndube and Dr. Matthias Geist, who gave me some scans. I alsothank Mrs. Stephanie Gay and Mr. Bert Sender of Bremen for their superb rendering of the illustrations. I am also grateful to the staff at Thieme Medical Publishers for enabling me to make this book a reality, with special thanks to Dr. Antje Schönpflug, Mrs. Marion Holzer, and, of course, Dr. Markus Becker.
