New to this edition
• Updates in Diagnostic Ultrasound: Vascular 2e include: • Latest information across several ACR RADS (Reporting and Data Systems) criteria, the standardized framework for characterizing and reporting image findings. Updates are included across several chapters from the LI-RADS, GB-RADS, and transplant criteria which now include Doppler ultrasound with its noninvasive methodology rated highly for appropriate use • New IAC recommendations are in place across several of the 75 Diagnoses chapters to match updated criteria which improves the accuracy of assorted vascular ultrasound exams, including carotid artery examination overall and including carotid artery stenosis, atherosclerosis, and plaque characterization • Updated ACR Appropriateness criteria include new “highly appropriate” ratings for diagnostic ultrasound, including for Doppler ultrasound. The updated criteria are reflected in chapters throughout Technique and Diagnoses chapters • Updates are included on the use of microbubbles that are used as an ultrasound contrast agent to enhance image resolution and distinguish vessels more clearly and minimize noise and background signals

Key Features
• Since the 1e published, ongoing COVId-19 diagnoses have shown a higher incidence of venous thrombosis which has led to to increased use of Doppler extremity evaluations, particularly in hospitalized patients. Doppler ultrasound updates are included in several 2e chapters • Microbubble imaging updates are included as usage of this method of enhancing image resolution continues to expand • New IAC recommendations in place to match updated criteria which improves the accuracy of assorted vascular ultrasound exams, including carotid artery examination overall, and carotid artery stenosis, atherosclerosis, and plaque characterization diagnoses • Updated ACR Appropriateness criteria include new “highly appropriate” ratings for diagnostic ultrasound, including for Doppler ultrasound
