PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"This is a most impressive book covering all the important aspects of ultrasound contrast agents. ... The layout is logical ... . There are many good pictures ... . a valuable addition to any ultrasound department's library. ... gives both the novice and the more experienced user an easily readable tome of reference to encourage them in their work. I strongly recommend it." (M. J. Weston, Ultrasound, Vol. 13 (3), 2005)
"Under the leadership of Emilio Quaia, one of the leading lights himself, an outstanding team of luminaries has been assembled who very effectively cover all the major topics in this evolving field."
"Thomas Whittingham contributes a very useful survey of the proliferating and confusing array of special ultrasound techniques that are available with modern instruments."
"This is an excellent book that should be on the shelf of anyone interested in ultrasound."
