Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paula J. Woodward, MD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This monograph on ultrasound and the endometrium is part of the Progress in Obstetrics and Gynecological Sonography Series.
Purpose: The purpose is to review all facets of transvaginal sonography of the endometrium. It is designed to review current state-of-the-art imaging techniques along with pathologic conditions involving the endometrium.
Audience: The audience includes radiologists and gynecologists whose practice includes transvaginal sonography. It is written at a level that is also appropriate for residents in both specialties.
Features: This book is well organized, beginning with a review of the sonographic appearance of the endometrium under normal physiologic conditions and hormonal replacement. Subsequent chapters include evaluation of infertility disorders, postmenopausal bleeding, tamoxifen therapy, and endometrial carcinoma. Advanced techniques including sonohysterography, three-dimensional ultrasound, and intraoperative applications are included. The book is well illustrated with color drawings and clinical images. (Those chapters written by European authors have the images reversed from those usually seen in standard United States textbooks.)
Assessment: This monograph gives an excellent background for the understanding of endometrial diseases. It quickly moves forward to encompass all state-of-the-art techniques for transvaginal sonography. Each chapter is well referenced and includes the most up-to-date information on the topic. It is ideally suited for someone who wants to have a short, easy-to-read review of endometrial sonography.
