Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Ultrasound has become a common practice in pregnancy, both to confirm the health of the fetus and to provide information about gender to the prospective parents. Using 250 diagnostic ultrasound images, Harvard radiology professors Doubilet and Carol B. Benson, with health writer Roanne Weisman, present a marvelous book charting the growth of babies in the womb. Readers are taken through the entire reproductive process, from ovulation through the third trimester. Each of the images is paired with a mirroring line drawing that clarifies the image through labels, helping the reader to "see" even the smallest nuance. Multiple pregnancies earn a chapter; other diagnostic testing, such as amniocentesis, is mentioned. The authors well explain the different types of ultrasound and their medical uses, especially the 3D images that show the outer surface of the baby and the 2D images revealing the internal development of organs. This virtual tour of a life in the making will attract future parents in droves.
—Janet M. Schneider
