The new 4th edition of Don Ridgway's unabashedly practical and famously unique how-to guide to vascular scanning will astound and delight both beginners and veterans who are cross-training in vascular ultrasound or earning CME credit. All of the features that have made this book so popular and useful are updated in full color--how to scan all of the vascular systems, numerous scanning exercises and quizzes, Other Vascular Diagnostic Modalities, Those Darn Doppler Angles, The Important and Somewhat Tricky Bifurcation Maneuver, Seven Tips toward Good Probemanship, and Getting Stuck: A Word about the Flop Sweats. There are more than 700 illustrations in all, full-color technical and anatomic illustrations, 150+ diagnostic images, Doppler waveforms, and scores of schematics, cross-sections, and clinical photographs. As praise for previous editions suggests, you won't find anything else like this stepwise guide for the relative novice: extremely reader-friendly, lavishly illustrated, and focused squarely on real-world skill building. SDMS approved for 18 CME credits.

About the Author:

As a practicing vascular technologist and Professor (now Emeritus) in the vascular technology program at Grossmont College in California, Don Ridgway was responsible for seeing that program become the first vascular technology curriculum to receive American Medical Association/CAAHEP accreditation. Don brings teaching skills from several different disciplines and areas of expertise. He has taught both writing (well, just freshman English) and fencing (swords, not chain-link) at San Diego State University, and for ten years he played and taught bluegrass banjo, mandolin, guitar, and Dobro--skills that inform his lessons on getting the best beam angles and protecting your hands. He still gets to pick occasionally when not on call or lecturing.

Review:

A teacher and communicator par excellence, Don Ridgway uses an informal and often humorous writing style that is both engaging and stress reducing. This 'how-to' manual delivers what it promises--a systematic, stepwise approach to acquiring the manual skills and fundamental concepts required. --Ultrasound in Medicine & Biology

Ridgway knows where the difficulty and frustration lie and encourages the reader through these trouble spots. Excellent color plates, marvelous drawings. --Radiology

What I like best about Introduction to Vascular Scanning is the way it is written. The author has a sense of humor and has written a book that isn't so dry it makes you fall asleep. He is also very encouraging for beginners and cross-trainers. --Shelley Hutson, RDMS, RDCS

I enjoy textbooks that tell it straight--thank you. If you are a working tech but new to vascular, this book is as good as having a lead tech guiding you through. --Leah Rave, RDMS

The teacher gets an 'A.' This book is a must for the neophyte and a great addition to the library of the experienced scanner. --Steve Talbot, RVT, FSVU

Very easy to follow the first time through and a great review five years later. Even as a registered tech of six-plus years, I still find it a great review! --Joy R. Bennett, BA, RVT

Very friendly format and easy to understand. It was written as if someone was beside me, one on one, teaching me. Great! In my 6 years of college, this book had the best format of any I've read and studied. It is the only book I actually started and finished all the way through! --Julia Palmer, RVT, RDMS

This book is an exceptional guide to vascular scanning, for experienced sonographers as well as beginners. Don's down-to-earth humor and practical approach are refreshing. --Caryl Thomason, RDCS, RVT

The content was very helpful and detailed. Good, clear illustrations. A good book for a beginner; you feel like you have an instructor with you guiding you through every step of scanning. --Feixue Yang, AS, RVT, RDMS --Feixue Yang, AS, RVT, RDMS

I have been doing ultrasound for more than 20 years. I am fully aware that the more you know, the more you know that you don't know. I felt that I learned a few more tricks of the trade in perfecting my skills with this book. --Patricia Dubovec, RN, RVT, RDCS

Very informative, great illustrations, extensive content. Introduction to Vascular Scanning is a well-written and informative book that contains a vast amount of information, exercises, and illustrations for a beginning or practicing sonographer. --Julie Wyatt, AA, BS, RDMS, RVT
