In Utero Diagnosis of Skeletal Disorders is a unique compendium of current information and 350 original ultrasound images covering the physiology and pathophysiology of osteogenesis. Tables and algorithms are used to organize the multitude of synonyms, terms, and syndromes found in the book. Syndromes are presented schematically and describe the mode of inheritance, definition and morphology, sonographic and radiologic manifestations, and associated malformations. The book will be an excellent reference for obstetricians, sonographers, radiologists, and anyone dealing with the early detection of fetal malformations.
