This book contains a series of clinical cases that address and illustrate difficult problems in obstetric ultrasound. The approach is strongly didactic and will aid trainees in maternal-fetal medicine and obstetrics to appreciate potential pitfalls and recognize rare presentations. Each case sets oout one page of text, then one of treatment algorithms, and then presents sample ultrasound scans. Learning objectives are given for each case, together with a short list of references and background reading.

Covering the vast majority of common problems encountered in obstetric ultrasound, this well illustrated handbook is an invaluable text for all those who scan for fetal anomalies.


"the book achieves its goal and will be an excellent tool for all obstetric ultrasound practitioners and fetal medicine units." Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, October 2007; 27(7): 756
