Robert Daigle is a nationally recognized educator, author and clinician in vascular technology and sonography. He has been in the field of noninvasive vascular diagnosis for over 30 years.
He has pioneered many of the diagnostic protocols widely in use today and has combined his extensive clinical experience with a dedication to teaching a no-nonsense approach to noninvasive vascular diagnosis.
Rob has lectured internationally and extensively in the USA. He is a long-standing member and a Fellow of the Society of Vascular Ultrasound. Rob is actively involved with vascular educational programs for the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) and the Society of Vascular Ultrasound (SVU).
Having both been in the field of vascular diagnosis for over 30 years, we have been part of the effort which has seen Doppler Ultrasound, in particular, progress from initially being a curiosity, to be one of the major non-invasive techniques used in vascular diagnosis. During this time, several textbooks have appeared which have tried to explain the technology and application for all who are interested in diseases of blood vessels. Most of them have their merits but there has not been, in our opinion, a book which explains how to carry out the examinations, indicated clinically, how to interpret the results of these investigations, and which also explain the basic technologies involved in a simple but rigorous way.
This present text, we have found, to be direct and to the point, and is not burdened with too much theoretical background. It contains very good technical explanations of basic Doppler ultrasound methods, Duplex and Colour Flow systems. It is also equally as good in the area of physiological testing. The book contains explanatory diagrams and emphasizes the pitfalls which can lead to misdiagnosis. It is easy to assimilate and is an excellent, practical guide and handbook.
We would recommend this book to Vascular Technologists, Clinical Applications Specialists in industry, and anybody who wishes to learn about the practicalities of vascular examinations.
