Essentials of Vascular Laboratory Diagnosis is a comprehensive, succinct, multimodality reference designed to facilitate the noninvasive diagnosis of peripheral vascular disorders.
Traditional textbooks have been limited in their ability to provide representative images obtained during vascular testing. This text comes with a CD which contains not only static images with clinical vignettes but also video clips displaying the dynamic aspects of vascular pathology to aid in the learning process. Each image can be enlarged to enable the user to fully appreciate the key features of the pathology displayed. In addition, the CD can be searched by image type, condition/disease or technique. The cases on the CD correspond with the text and include clinical ′′pearls′′ to facilitate the noninvasive testing techniques.
This highly practical diagnostic tool is an indispensable resource for both the office and hospital based vascular diagnostic laboratory.
