Recent advances in ultrasound technology have dramatically advanced prenatal
care, and its use is now standard. Medical professionals today can accurately
detect fetal structural irregularities, and as a result, provide higher quality
prenatal and postnatal patient care. This well-referenced teaching atlas is a
comprehensive and practical overview of fetal ultrasound technology, providing
up-to-date diagnosis and examination guidelines for the most clinically
important anomalies and diseases. Incorporating an impressive collection of
sonographic images and plates, the book provides an invaluable visual aid in
recognizing even the most difficult-to-interpret ultrasound findings.

Key features:

  • Nearly 500 high-quality sonograms and images that
    illustrate frequent and rare fetal irregularities, including pathophysiologic

  • Tips for: avoiding common image misinterpretations;
    scanning techniques; and optimal times for ultrasound examinations

  • Special chapters on chromosomal disorders and their
    soft markers, post-infectious malformations, and multiple pregnancies

  • Unique design that allows quick and easy access to information
  • Useful data and advice for concerned parents, including Internet resources and
    support groups

No professional can afford to be without this up-to-date information.
Incorporating the graphic strength of an atlas with the educational utility of a
textbook, ULTRASOUND DIAGNOSIS OF FETAL ANOMALIES is essential for helping
specialists to reliably identify prenatal irregularities and disease for the
best results.</P

Very well written and presented and contains 488 beautiful, colorful and appropriate illustrations. The layout makes it easy to read and, with the illustrations, it is an ideal textbook for reference by any unit involved in the diagnosis of fetal abnormality. The textbook is very well written and illustrated and is an invaluable reference for clinicians involved in prenatal diagnosis, counselling and management of fetal abnormalities.--ASUM Ultrasound Bulletin
