Overview

The most authoritative guide to sonography in obstetrics and gynecology—now in full color

Companion website includes images, case studies, and more

Written by radiologists and ob/gyns to provide a balanced perspective, this standard-setting guide is both a clinically relevant reference text and atlas—presented in full color for the first time. It expertly examines the full spectrum of disorders and conditions you’re likely to encounter in gynecologic and maternal-fetal care, supported throughout by more than 2,000 detailed sonographic illustrations. You’ll also find the latest procedures and diagnostic guidelines for the use of sonography in ob/gyn, including 3D and 4D image processing, transvaginal sonography, and color Dopler sonography.

The book opens with general obstetric sonography, covering such pivotal topics as normal pelvic anatomy and fetal echocardiography, before moving into fetal anomalies and disorders. Risk assessment and therapy, including first trimester screening and amniocentesis, are explored in the next section, while the remaining parts of the book focus on maternal disorders, gynecological sonography, and the newest complementary imaging modalities.

Features

  • The most trusted, accessible compendium of sonography in obstetrics and gynecology for residents and practitioners, filled with precise illustrations that add clarity to the text’s content
  • All-inclusive coverage of everything from sonographic operating instruments and screening the fetal patient for syndromes and anomalies, to diagnosing the female patient for cysts, infertility, and incontinence
  • NEW! Full-color format to aid readability and ease of use
  • NEW! Up-to-date information on the significant advances made in three dimensional and even four-dimensional Doppler technology
  • NEW! Learning aids: a “key points” section in each chapter; skill-building clinical scenarios; a stronger focus on differential diagnosis; multiple visuals (figure, illustration, or table) on each page; and helpful chapter-opening summaries
  • NEW! Companion website filled with concept-clarifying images, video loops, case studies supplemented by Q&As, plus cutting-edge insights on a range of integral sonography topics
  • NEW! SI Units incorporated throughout

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anthony Shanks, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This book comprehensively covers the use of ultrasound in obstetrics/gynecology.
Purpose: It details the technical background and clinical utility of ultrasound for obstetric and gynecologic problems. This edition incorporates new advances in 3D/4D technology as well as evidence-based medicine updates. The book sets lofty objectives and does a spectacular job of achieving them.
Audience: The book is written for obstetric/gynecology physicians, although anyone who uses ultrasound would appreciate it. The authors are leaders in the field.
Features: The book is divided into two parts: obstetrics first, gynecology second. Each section could easily be a book on its own. Initial chapters in the obstetrics section present the physics behind ultrasound and the current evidence for its safety. Unlike other books in this area, this one is very easy to read and can be consumed in a leisurely manner. The images are tremendous — all are well done, easy to read and understand, and accompany the text really well. A unique feature is the use of non-ultrasound images to help illustrate teaching points. For example, diagrams of the blood circulation in the fetus are presented before the cardiac images, which is essential to create three-dimensional images in the reader's mind. The use of postnatal pictures adds to the ultrasound pictures, such as showing pathology specimens of placenta percreta next to ultrasound images (chapter 8). In a book full of standout chapters, I will mention chapter 15, on the prenatal diagnosis of cerebrospinal anomalies, which begins by highlighting normal anatomy. Placing the normal anatomy in this chapter — as opposed to an earlier chapter — makes it much easier to compare abnormal to normal when it is encountered. The summary of key points is also excellent. The companion website allows readers to view the textbook online, but more importantly, it has a quiz feature where readers can challenge themselves to diagnose real-time US images.
Assessment: This is a beautiful and comprehensive ultrasound reference. It blends technical acquisition of images with clinical application. There are fantastic sections on genetics and the online companion is very well done. There are many other ultrasound books, but very few can be picked up and read so easily.
