Reseña del editor
Head and neck ultrasound is a standard radiological examination performed at most hospitals. It is an important topic and all specialist registrars in radiology will need to learn how to scan the organs and structures of the head and neck. This book covers normal anatomy and provides a comprehensive account of pathological processes in all of the head and neck structures, including the vasculature. With excellent diagrams and high quality images, it illustrates the key technical and diagnostic steps needed by both trainee and established radiographers or radiologists. It provides clear guidance on scanning technique, potential pitfalls and common problems, and how to achieve optimum image quality. Key topics include: normal anatomy of the head and neck region, practical scanning technique, the salivary glands, the thyroid and parathyroid, lymph nodes, cystic masses, the larynx, what the surgeon needs to know and why, biopsy techniques and basic vascular ultrasound.Ver Descripción del producto

The authors are correct when they say that everyone starting out with head and neck ultrasound is confused as the anatomy is difficult. This aspect is well done in this book but some expansion and more images would be helpful. The text is a little dense and needs close reading.
The introduction of the levels in the neck and the various spaces in the neck probably should be placed earlier in the book and integrtaed better with the anatomy of the neck.
A few tables would be a useful addition: for example a table of normal vs suspicious features in lymph nodes or lesions within the thyroid. These would be useful summaries of the information within the text.
The section on the larynx was interesting. It did however have me scanning over my anatomy books to revise the intrinsic muscles of the larynx. A short section on the anatomy of the larynx before discussing the pathology would have been helpful.
Overall this is a good book. It is not the easiest first book on head and neck ultrasound ever written. There are a few minor things that would I feel help - including as ever more images. For those with some familarity with the head and neck I think this book would be very helpful. It is certainly a book that an ENT surgeon would find helpful if only to make his/her life easier dealing with radiology.
Although it is very thorough, some of the topics could use a little more coverage or additional images.
A very good buy overall for anyone getting started in Head and Neck ultrasound imaging. The advanced user will probably want a little weightier text.
