Just as the use of ultrasound (US) imaging revolutionized medicine in the past decade, the recent development of 3-D devices and visualization strategies has revolutionized US imaging. Suri (Biomedical Technologies, Inc., Stoughton, MA) and international specialists in imaging and related fields introduce 15 contributed chapters focusing on US for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The volume presents up-to-date information on the areas of 3-D devices and techniques in the analysis of complex anatomical structures and the guiding/monitoring of interventional procedures; vascular applications including carotid artery analysis; breast lesion classification; 4-D US devices for assessing heart conditions; more precise 3-D maps for prostate cancer detection; and therapeutic applications including focused US and thermal ablations. The CD-ROM offers full-color images. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
