This practical, two-volume handbook is the first to illustrate the use of transvaginal color doppler in obstetrics and gynecology. It provides a critical look at state-of-the-art ultrasound techniques and equipment and serves as a comprehensive reference with numerous black/white and color ultrasonograms, tables and graphs. The volumes include extensive literature citations which assist the investigator in finding more in-depth references. This work focuses on the recent remarkable expansion in both diagnostic techniques and clinical applications. It reports findings based on an unusually large patient population over a long period of time. It presents the accuracy and limitations of various aspects of ultrasound. This important publication is especially helpful for clinicians and researchers.
