Ultrasound and the Fallopian Tube

This a high-level, technically detailed clinical textbook featuring high-resolution color photographs and extensive referencing. As the volume editors say in their Foreword, For those who seek a comprehensive text on the sonographic aspects of the fallopian tube, starting with histopathologic aspects and continuing through the normal sonographic appearance of the tube

Overview

This a high-level, technically detailed clinical textbook featuring high-resolution color photographs and extensive referencing. As the volume editors say in their Foreword, For those who seek a comprehensive text on the sonographic aspects of the fallopian tube, starting with histopathologic aspects and continuing through the normal sonographic appearance of the tube, as well as the intriguing picture of the inflamed salpinx, the appropriate chapters will be appreciated. Also discussed are attempts to evaluate the tube through its vascularization and the relatively rare benign and malignant tumors as well as paratubal tumors. The chapter discussing ectopic gestation can serve as an aid to the practicing gynecologist to gain confidence in managing the patient suspected of this disease. A special chapter is dedicated to the relatively new procedure of testing the patency of the fallopian tube by ultrasonography.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James Aiman, MD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This small text is one in a series on the subject of progress in obstetric and gynecologic ultrasonography. An international cast of authors has contributed the 11 chapters.
Purpose: The purpose is to present current knowledge about sonographic evaluation of the fallopian tubes. The book is needed, although it may require several more years before ultrasonography offers truly significant clinical information not otherwise available.
Audience: Radiologists and gynecologists will benefit most from this text provided they heed the written caution about the limits of ultrasonography of the oviducts. The authors are internationally recognized authorities.
Features: The book contains an appropriate number of illustrations, all of excellent quality. There are 32 color plates. The references are pertinent, current, and of sufficient number to enable the reader to explore the subject more thoroughly. The table of contents is adequate. The index is adequate, but would improve by being more extensive.
Assessment: This is a pioneer work that gathers together what is known about ultrasonography of the fallopian tube. The next edition should contain a greater breadth and depth information. An illustration of the problems with this text is the inclusion of a chapter on the normal fallopian tube that ends by stating that, "the normal anatomy of the fallopian tube is rarely seen by ultrasonography." Although the color plates each have an accompanying legend, it is often not apparent what the important finding is.
