Abstract
This atlas presents outstanding three-dimensional (3D) echocardiographic images of structural heart diseases, including congenital and valvular diseases and cardiac masses and tumors. The aim is to enable the reader to derive maximum diagnostic and treatment benefit from the modality through optimal image acquisition and interpretation. To this end a wide range of instructive individual cases are depicted, with sequential arrangement of all images and views of diagnostic value, including 3D zoom, full-volume, and live 3D images. For each case, a key lesson is highlighted and attention is drawn to aspects of relevance to diagnosis and treatment. In addition, readers will have online access to echocardiographic video clips for each patient. The closing part of the book examines the role of 3D echocardiography in structural heart disease interventions. The superb quality of the illustrations and the range of cases considered ensure that this atlas will be an excellent visual learning tool and an ideal aid for cardiology residents and fellows in day-to-day clinical practice.

Abstract
Abdominal Ultrasound for Surgeons provides a comprehensive guide to the use of ultrasonography in surgical practice of abdominal diseases. The content is divided into three major sections focusing on basic principles of ultrasound, ultrasound anatomy and pathology of the abdomen, and employment of ultrasound of the abdomen in surgical practice. A final section is dedicated to the logistics of incorporating ultrasound into a surgical practice. The first section provides an introduction to the principles of ultrasonography focusing on ultrasound physics, equipment, and instrumentation. A detailed approach to the various scanning methods and image interpretation is demonstrated with illustrations, images, and video. The second section focuses on ultrasound anatomy of the abdomen. Each chapter demonstrates the normal and abnormal ultrasound anatomy of specific abdominal organ or organ systems (abdominal wall, liver, pancreas, biliary, stomach, anorectum, retroperitoneum, vascular) with illustrations and images. The current status and technique of endoscopic ultrasound of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tracks is addressed in this section. The third section provides a state-of-the-art review of the status of each major application of abdominal ultrasound in surgery. Topics range from trauma ultrasound and laparoscopic staging to techniques in ultrasound guidance and three-dimensional targeting. This section provides a comprehensive review of the employment of interventional, intraoperative, laparoscopic, transabdominal and endoscopic ultrasound. The fourth and last section addresses the practice aspects of incorporation of ultrasound into a surgical practice.

Abstract
This textbook provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of ultrasound in thyroid and parathyroid diseases, and will serve as a valuable resource for all clinicians and allied healthcare providers who wish to advance their knowledge and skills in sonography. Although a novice sonographer will be able to understand all of the topics, these are presented from a vantage point of complex decision-making encountered in real clinical scenarios. The sections are organized according to a logical structure covering benign and malignant thyroid conditions, parathyroid disease, and ultrasound technology, ultrasound-guided interventions, and innovations. The style of the chapters provide practical, actionable information that is richly illustrated with figures and links to video cine-clips, as these form the real-time advantage of ultrasound compared to other imaging modalities. Since thyroid and parathyroid ultrasound is now mainly clinician-performed, the chapter topics aim to show how different specialists uniquely apply ultrasound in given clinical scenarios. The text illustrates the optimal incorporation of current practice guidelines, as this remains varied and inconsistent among clinicians. The content is written by invited experts who perform ultrasound in their daily clinical practices and participate in teaching ultrasound nationally and internationally. It conveys the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information in an interactive and visual format. Advanced Thyroid and Parathyroid Ultrasound fills a gap in currently available resources by serving as a single resource unifying information relevant to multiple specialists interested in advanced thyroid and parathyroid ultrasound. It provides a practical, concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management.

Abstract
This book introduces classic and unique cases in 3D TEE in structural heart disease interventions. In each all the 40 cases, background information, clinical presentations, and diagnostic findings are present and followed by step-by-step approaches of interventional therapies and outcomes after the procedures. The highlight of the book is to utilize extensive illustrations, over 500, to demonstrate various cardiovascular pathologies. Most of the figures are 3D transesophageal echocardiograms, they are cooperated with 2D transesophageal echocardiograms, X rays, fluoroscopies, computed tomograms, etc. Since the echo images obtained in clinic practice are moving images, it also includes over 300 videos, which serve as a supplement to the static illustrations in this book. The atlas is organized into five chapters. In Chapters one, cases received closure of congenital and acquired cardiac defects are described. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation and its complications are discussed in Chapter two and three. Chapter four details the valve-in-valve therapy. Chapter five covers MitraClip therapy. It offers readers an insider's view of 3D transesophageal echocardiography in structural heart disease interventions and to refresh their clinical work.

Abstract
The present book is an illustrated guide on fetal medicine, including a wealth of normal and pathological/malformations ultrasound images, throughout the whole pregnancy. Thus, the book intends to fill two gaps in once: The lack of a material discussing the basic principles of fetal ultrasound, which are the basement for a more efficient learning in fetal medicine. . The need for a thorough approach in fetal medicine, presenting both normal and pathological imaging, allowing a detailed evaluation of clinical conditions of importance in prenatal care and follow up. The Atlas of Ultrasound Imaging is an up to date guide to all obstetricians, gynecologists and pediatricians who intend to upgrade their knowledge in fetal medicine, as well as to any other professional, professor, student or research interested in fetal ultrasound.

Abstract
This atlas comprehensively covers the use of basic ultrasound (US) scanning technologies to recognize both normal and pathologic states. It covers how to use US for soft tissue diagnosis, assessing cardiac function, pericardial effusion, tamponade, peripheral veins, gallbladder, bowel, kidneys, skull, sinuses, eye, pleura, scrotum and testes. Atlas of Handheld Ultrasound provides detailed clinically relevant examples of how US can be used to aid diagnosis across a wide range of medical disciplines. Chapters are formatted in a clear and easy-to-follow format, with a range of interactive material to aid the reader in developing a deep understanding of how to use and interpret US correctly. It therefore provides a critical resource on how to use the modality for both specialist and non-specialist practitioners.

Abstract
In recent years, sonography of the peripheral nervous system has gained widespread acceptance. New diagnostic applications have emerged, and the field of ultrasound-guided interventions has expanded significantly: regional anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks, and similar techniques are now frequently performed under ultrasound guidance by anesthesiologists and pain physicians alike. This atlas of peripheral nerve ultrasound is designed to meet the daily needs of both radiologists and clinicians by allowing rapid review of typical features, knowledge of which is important for successful diagnosis and intervention. The side by side presentation of ultrasound images with anatomical cryosections and photographs of transducer positions allows for reliable sonographic identification of even tiny nerves in regions of complex topography. The practical value of the atlas is further enhanced by correlations with high-resolution MRI scans and the inclusion of advice on state of the art examination techniques.
Contents
Introduction to High Resolution Sonography of the Peripheral Nervous System: General Considerations and Examination Technique -- Introduction to Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Peripheral Nervous System: General Considerations and Examination Technique -- Nerves in the Head and Neck -- Upper Extremity Nerves -- Lower Extremity Nerves -- Nerves in the Trunk and Abdominal Wall.
