This specialist volume is the first English-language textbook to present a comprehensive view of the sonographic aspects of abdominal transplantation, from pre-assessment of the patient to examination during the peri-operative period and on through follow up. Extensively illustrated, the text gives in-depth treatment to the color doppler techniques critical in modern practice as well as other imaging modalities useful in the transplantation of the kidneys, pancreas and small bowel. Transplant physicians and surgeons, along with those radiologists and sonographers involved in the assessment of transplant patients, will find this book an invaluable practical reference.
