Fetal Sonography / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Elsevier Health Sciences
Devoted to normal and normal variant sonography, anatomy, measurements, and techniques of scanning, this inclusive text/reference focuses exclusively on fetal sonography. The book is divided into three sections: the first section discusses such topics as sonographic biological effects and safety, and conduct of the obstetrical exam; the second section is a system-by-system description of normal fetal anatomy and measurements used to study growth throughout pregnancy; the last section contains numerous images, showing the full term of normal human pregnancy.
• Introduces fetal sonographic history, acoustic physics, statistics, sonographic biological effects of safety, and the general aspects of conducting obstetrical sonographic examinations. Demonstrates the actual manipulations of the sonographic transducer and includes a working vocabulary for understanding the various motions involved in physical use of transducers - makes the book truly unique.
• Presents new methods for evaluating three-dimensional cranial morphology - not found in any other book of this kind. Addresses evaluation of both fetal as well as non-fetal structures such as the placenta, umbilical cord, amniotic fluid, as well as maternal changes in the morphology of the uterus.
• Provides many effective tools for determining fetal age and size including, ARA (age range analysis), correlation of the embryonic heart rate with age, plus graphs and tables. Depicts a complete image series of normal changes in fetal anatomy from start to finish.
