I have taught vascular diagnostic sonography since 1985, and for most of those years the Zwiebel text has been my main textbook. It is written specifically for the practicing vascular tech, and covers all aspects of the field thoroughly. If you're in the biz, or if you're learning to be in the biz, you must have this one.

Format: Hardcover
I have purchased this book and read it few times over the last 5 years. I use it primarily as a text book to refer to for the RVS, RVT, RPVI exam. there has allot of books about vascular US since this book was written but none as authoritative or complete.

If you are a practicing physician involved in the field of vascular US this book is a must. some of the vascular technicians I worked with found it a great aid.

If you are studying for a vascular US exam this book is great but it is ot the only book you need as it doesn't cover vascular US physics in depth.

This new 5th edition is an improvement on an already excellent text on vascular sonography. Some tests are heavy on very detailed, hard-to-grasp, very long-winded theory that seem to be aimed at physicists. Still others are intentionally simplistic in an attempt to convey the basic issues, while unfortunately,

omitting so much you will need different text to fill in blanks.

Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography has the nearly perfect balance of detailed but understandable theory, and a wonderful library of excellent pictures and illustrations strategically placed in all the appropriate places. This one is a gem.

I bought this book (used) from Amazon, and I was greatly surprised that it looked like new (I do not really think anybody read any part of this book before). This talks very good about Amazon deals (I paid more than three times less money than the "new" book price)
I knew the book before buying it and I think it is very easy to read and very well illustrated. As a vascular ultrasound tech, I like to have it handy during my everyday work.
