Overview

FETAL ANOMALIES
Advances in ultrasound technology are reshaping the field of health care for obstetricians and pediatric specialists. Detailed fetal imaging has enabled medical professionals to detect fetal structural anomalies and research practical guidelines for prenatal diagnosis and postnatal management. Fetal Anomalies: Ultrasound Diagnosis and Postnatal Management is a practical sourcebook with images of structural fetal malformations on a continuum that begins at the stage of ultrasonographic identification, progressing to characterization in the newborn period, and culminating in repair and postoperative follow up.

This comprehensive text correlates pre- and post-natal images with the type of treatment appropriate to structural anomalies of the different organ systems. Numerous examples from each organ system are included and the material is clinically oriented. Fetal Anomalies: Ultrasound Diagnosis and Postnatal Management reviews such topics as:

  • Externally visible defects
  • Skeletal dysplasia
  • Central nervous, gastrointestinal, urinary, and genital systems
  • Umbilical cord anomalies
  • Abnormalities specific to multiple pregnancies
  • Abnormalities of amniotic fluid volume
  • Abnormalities that elude prenatal detection

Incorporating the pictorial strengths of an atlas with the didactic utility of a reference work, Fetal Anomalies: Ultrasound Diagnosis and Postnatal Management is a unique book bridging various specialties that comprise maternal-fetal medicine, such as obstetrics, diagnostic imaging, neonatology, perinatology, surgery, and urology.
