The only text to provide in-depth illustrations of the normal and abnormal fetal anatomy on MR imaging, this guide includes chapters highlighting the state-of-the-science in the imaging of the fetal skull, face, neck, nervous system, chest, abdomen, and musculoskeletal system. Discussing applications at the forefront of the discipline, this reference studies data gleaned from MR examinations of maternal and fetal health, reviews common fast imaging techniques, details pitfalls related to fetal MR imaging, and analyzes methods for improving image resolution.
"…a great book without any real competition. For those already performing MRI, there will be useful tips and explanatory images to increase their understanding. For those just beginning to explore fetal MRI, this book provides all the relevant information needed to get started."
"…an excellent, well-devised pictorial journey through much of normal fetal development and select fetal anomalies…the images display beautiful anatomy. Follow-up postnatal images on select cases add to reader satisfaction. I thoroughly enjoyed this book."
