Vascular Laboratory Practice V

Published Institute of Physics & Engineering In Medicine: 2004: IPEM Report Series


This publication has been commissioned by the Society for Vascular Technology and published in collaboration with IPEM to provide a set of national guidelines for the recommended working practice in vascular laboratories. This informative and educational volume, one of a six part series, deals with the diverse range of normal and abnormal anatomy and pathology of the upper limb blood vessels. The step-by-step ‘How to do it’ protocols cover Duplex Ultrasound assessment of upper limb arterial and venous systems and the renal access fistula. This volume is packed with hundreds of colour figures and diagrams to further aid diagnosis by the vascular ultrasound specialist during the examination of normal and abnormal upper limb vessels – including entrapment syndromes, venous thrombosis, subclavian steal phenomena and many, many other rarely and routinely encountered arterial and venous pathologies. These guidelines from SVT should be essential reading for anyone working in a vascular laboratory, vascular radiologists and vascular nurses as well as manufacturers and suppliers of ultrasound equipment
