The field of non-invasive vascular diagnosis is expanding, and there is a need in this field for a concise overview of the various imaging options available to the vascular team. This book describes all of the various diagnostic options available today in 50+ chapters. Experts from various fields tackle vascular imaging of cerebrovascular disease, peripheral atherosclerotic occlusive disease, intra-abdominal occlusive disease, venous disorders, and aneurysms. Additional topics range from basic science subjects such as ultrasound physics and instruments to coding and reimbursement issues.
