INTERPRETING OBSTETRIC ULTRASOUND

DR AMAR BHIDE
St Georges's Hospital UK

Most texts on ultrasonography in pregnancy are arranged by organ system. This is a good way to learn the subject to begin with. However, when a case presents, many organ systems may be involved. “Interpreting Obstetric Ultrasound” is written using this real-life case-based approach involving genuine clinical problems. It discusses the possible causes of each problem as well as the approach to be followed in each case. The book is comprehensively illustrated with over one hundred ultrasound scans obtained and explained by the author during his many years of experience in this field. It will be read by practising obstetricians, ultrasonographers, radiologists and specialists in maternal-fetal medicine, and will also help candidates prepare for the MRCOG exam, the RCR/RCOG diploma in obstetric ultrasound and equivalent postgraduate courses worldwide.
