The 19 chapters can be grouped into three parts: technology, systematic study of the abdominal organs, and special topics. The first part deals with: history, basic physics and general principles of abdominal scanning. These aspects are discussed in a very comprehensive way with clear didactic diagrams. The second part starts with a chapter on normal cross-sectional anatomy of the abdomen in seven transverse and five longitudinal sections, comparing ultrasonograms with schematic anatomical drawings.
The next 10 chapters study the individual organs in a systematic way: anatomy, method of examination, normal organ, pathological conditions.
These chapters cover: liver, biliary system, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, retroperitoneum, great vessels, gastro-intestinal tract, urinary bladder and prostate, and female reproductive organs. The third part presents interesting topics, such as: abscesses, hematomas and fluid collections, puncture techniques, organ volume estimations, errors and pitfalls, and indications for abdominal ultrasonic scanning.
It should be mentioned here that the Gentofte group are pioneers in the sonar approach for percutaneous punctures. This handbook on abdominal ultrasound is a very valuable contribution to this particular field.
Both text and illustrations are of a very high didactic quality.
Only part of the ultrasonograms are gray scale images, but the bistable images are very good as well.
This handbook is in the first place intended for the radiologist-, physician- or surgeon-ultrasonographist. It can, however, be recommended to the gynecologist who is performing ultrasound scanning for lower abdominal and pelvic conditions, which turn out to be not always of gynecological origin.

Chapters 3 through 12 are divided according to organ and vessel systems, such as hepatobiliary, urinary, splenic, aorta and inferior vena cava.
Each chapter uses a coherent and logical style of preliminary remarks, locating the organ or vessel, imaging the organ, organ details and anatomical relationship. This is helpful for the novice ultrasound practitioner and anatomy demonstrators lecturers to gain understanding of applied ultrasound anatomy.
Chapter 13 is a quick guide. This chapter is designed to give the ultrasound practitioner a systematic approach in interpreting suspicious findings and a way to apply the use of ultrasound to specific clinical questions. Chapter 15 considers report writing guidelines and styles, and archiving of images.
This is useful for all practitioners, whether acting as a referrer or doing the examination. It is a source to be used for clinical governance. Abdominal Ultrasound will be beneficial, in conjunction with other similar books and World Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology www. It will be a valuable addition to a library in a School of Medicine, an accredited Higher Education Institute Ultrasound Programme, School of Radiology or Radiology Academy, diagnostic and therapeutic imaging department, and a point of care ultrasound service.
