    Summary: "Ultrasound is often the first imaging study for evaluation of patients presenting with abdominal or pelvic pain, abnormal biochemical tests, suspected mass, or gynecologic symptoms. Depending on the ultrasound findings, patients may go on to further imaging or, in many cases, the clinical decision is based on ultrasound findings alone. It is therefore imperative for the radiologist to confidently recognize the sonographic appearance of specific diagnoses. The more the radiologist knows about the sonographic appearance of specific entities, the less likely a patient will be referred for potentially unnecessary imaging. We hope this book highlights this information in an easily digestible and image-focused format. We have tailored this book for the well-rounded abdominal radiologist who uses all imaging modalities in evaluation of the abdomen and pelvis but with a focus on ultrasound. You will find numerous examples of grayscale, color, power, and spectral (pulsed) Doppler imaging in each chapter and, when applicable, contrast-enhanced ultrasound. Correlation with CT and MR is provided in many chapters. Detailed artistic renderings of each disease entity further complement the visual splendor of the book. In this era, when conservative use of radiation exposure from CT as well as minimization of iodinated- or gadolinium-based contrast are increasingly important, ultrasound is re-emerging as an extremely attractive and optimal imaging modality. Moreover, ultrasound technology continues to improve, resulting in dramatic changes in image quality in the last decade. New transducer materials, improved image quality with higher resolution, noise-reduction techniques, increased Doppler sensitivity, together with widespread use of 3D transducers have significantly impacted our daily ultrasound practice. It is thus time for a second edition of Diagnostic Ultrasound: Abdomen and Pelvis in the highly acclaimed Amirsys series. This edition presents dedicated sections on ultrasound anatomy, diagnoses, and differential diagnoses, organized by organ. Ultrasound images, text and references have been extensively updated and new chapters have been added to reflect current ultrasound practice."--Provided by publisher.
