Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Jonathan Bonilla, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This overview of fetal cardiovascular anomalies is accompanied by a video atlas.
Purpose: Veering from traditional books on the technical aspects of image acquisition, this one describes a variety of cardiovascular disorders with a focus on pathologic identification through echocardiographic markers.
Audience: Pediatric cardiologists are the intended audience, but obstetricians, medical sonographers, perinatologists, neonatologists, and radiologists may find it of interest.
Features: Each concise chapter presents the anatomy of a condition along with descriptive figures of cardiac anomalies. This is followed by a more detailed focus on the echocardiographic findings of each condition with illustrative, still-frame images and an accompanying video library.
Assessment: This book effectively illustrates the evolving field of fetal cardiac imaging through multiple cases from an experienced fetal heart program. It is directed at a specialized audience that includes trainees and practitioners in the field of pediatric congenital heart disease and fulfills its objective to be a reference with up-to-date imaging identification.
