Written by the world's preeminent authorities on diagnostic ultrasound, this reference guides readers through the use of ultrasound to detect and identify birth defects--including heart malformations, kidney obstructions, intestinal blockages, lung abnormalities, and more. The book offers up-to-date advice on what to look for, given a certain risk or clinical history, and how to perform and interpret the ultrasound examination. More than 1,600 images--including full-color throughout--provide a true-to-life view of ultrasound findings. Each anomaly is discussed in an easy-to-follow format that covers characteristic features...pathogenesis and etiology...differential diagnosis...prognosis...and management. The book includes brief tables of teratogens and information on genetic markers.Nyberg, David A. is the author of 'Diagnostic Imaging of Fetal Anomalies', published 2003 under ISBN 9780781732116 and ISBN 0781732115.
