What is included with this book?


Fetal Echocardiography is a comprehensive, lavishly illustrated guide to fetal heart scanning for anyone involved in obstetric ultrasound. Authored by a leading pediatric cardiologist with over 30 years of experience, it brings together all the information needed by cardiologists, obstetricians, sonographers or maternal-fetal medicine clinicians in order to obtain clear, high-quality echocardiograms and interpret them. Initial chapters provide the basic principles of echocardiography and how to obtain the standard views, giving numerous illustrations of each standard view and the possible deviations from normal. Subsequent chapters present a complete pictorial representation of almost all malformations recognised in fetal life. An overview of the likely outcome of each malformation is given, backed up by personal data involving nearly 4000 abnormal fetal hearts. Additional chapters cover Fetal Arrhythmias and Early Fetal Heart Scanning. Highly illustrated and full of practical guidance, Fetal Echocardiography is an invaluable resource for all practitioners involved in obstetric scanning.
