How to Use This Book
The book is divided into three main sections: musculoskeletal, reproduction, and internal medicine. Each section is then further subdivided into chapters by anatomical region. Within each chapter is information on scanning technique for that area, a review of the normal anatomy and discussion of some of the more common ultrasonographic abnormalities. This is then followed by images that demonstrate normal and abnormal findings. The end of each chapter lists Recommended Reading for more extensive references relating to the chapter topics.
