    Summary: A useful reference
    Rating: 4
    I purchased this book in order to establish an emergency ultrasound program for our Remote Site Medical Services company. The book does not assume any prior knowledge of ultrasound, and thus is a useful reference for our paramedics. It is heavily illustrated with actual ultrasound images for each condition. The focus is on US in trauma (our primary concern) or FAST- Focused Abdominal Survey for Trauma, but also includes various gynelogical and medical conditions which typically present to the ED. There are a couple of drawbacks: this is written as a typically dry medical textbook, and not as a handbook or study guide for a short US program, despite the blurb above. Thus, most of the illustrations are B&W, with most of the drawings that show the outline of the anatomical structures displayed in the US being just simple line drawing. I think more enlightening would have been actual cadaver anatomy photos (See NcMinn's Color Atlas of Human Anatomy) referenced, as well as MRI and CT scan images, to give the student a better grasp of how to correlate US images to actual anatomy.
