"My inital thought was that the book had perhaps tried to be too ambitious in covering such a large number of topics. However, on reading the chapters, I appreciated that the level of detail provided in each area gave a really useful overview for anyone embarking on a sonography career or wishing to extend their areas of scanning expertise.

Overall, this book is an excellent resource for novice sonography students, but also provides a useful reference book for the more experienced sonographer."? Reviewed by: Dr Vivien Gibbs on behalf of RAD Magazine? Date: July 2015
