Review This is a substantial textbook, which first appeared in 2008. The second edition adds coverage of such topics as airway management, paediatrics, endobronchial procedures and fine needle aspiration (of which much more anon). The impression is of a surprisingly colourful and well illustrated book, which is remarkable considering the monochrome topic. US does rely on movement, interaction and feedback to the operator, to build up a mental 3D image. Fortunately the countless illustrations are backed with on-line video images. Mind you, an early chapter on emerging advances promises 3D (even 4D) reconstructions, as we have seen in foetal US. There is a multi-author series of chapters covering the basic sciences and normal anatomy, whilst the thyroid obviously dominates the text. For salivary glands and neck masses I increasingly rely on a technology that seemed at a dead end and confined to prenatal checks, just a few decades ago. There are some surprises, with chapters on US of the larynx, the bronchi, the oesophagus, the paranasal sinuses and, especially, the ear where I need some further convincing. Is that Endotracheal tube in the right place? I had not thought of that. Clever. But then comes a series of chapters on interventional US. This is the fun bit. For me, Dr Abel s chapter on "The Science and Art of Optimal Fine Needle Biopsy and Smear making" made for a marvellous 30 pages, which I have now read three times. Every time I do so, I realise where and in how many ways I have been doing this...if not wrongly, then without that Art he describes, at the very least. Use an IV extension tubing, touch the needle on the slide, use a smaller needle (however counterintuitive), try the snap technique . If I never pick up an US probe in my latter years, this advice has altered my practice. Vascular US, Power Doppler, IV contrast, Shear Wave Elastography will remain the province of the radiologists, but there is so much in this book to appeal to any head and neck oncologist, to the endocrine surgeon, or our vascular fraternity. But it was Chapter 16
