Ultrasound is a stethoscope of a radiologist to look into the intriguing pathological conditions and provide useful information to the clinician for better patient care. However, this technology is very much operator-dependent and thus a thorough understanding of standard scanning technique and knowledge of the sonographic anatomy is essential for optimum results. Thus we embarked on the monumental task of providing a basic book on clinical diagnostic ultrasound. The main feature of this book is extensive coverage and easy comprehension. The book has gone deeply into normal sonographic anatomy and the basic technique of performing ultrasound. The book beautifully covers sonography of the abdomen and superficial parts. A special effort has been made to include a large number of illustrations and scans to provide a clear impression of the sonographic appearance of normal and pathologic lesions. Obstetric ultrasound has also been covered in the text. A chapter on Doppler has been included in order to provide the basic knowledge of the subject. Introduction to interventions and latest advancement in ultrasound emphasises its importance in therapeutics.
