FETAL ANOMALIES Advances in ultrasound technology are reshaping the field of health care for obstetricians and pediatric specialists. Detailed fetal imaging has enabled medical professionals to detect fetal structural anomalies and research practical guidelines for prenatal diagnosis and postnatal management. Fetal Anomalies: Ultrasound Diagnosis and Postnatal Management is a practical sourcebook with images of structural fetal malformations on a continuum that begins at the stage of ultrasonographic identification, progressing to characterization in the newborn period, and culminating in repair and postoperative follow up. This comprehensive text correlates pre- and post-natal images with the type of treatment appropriate to structural anomalies of the different organ systems. Numerous examples from each organ system are included and the material is clinically oriented. Fetal Anomalies: Ultrasound Diagnosis and Postnatal Management reviews such topics as: Externally visible defects Skeletal dysplasia Central nervous, gastrointestinal, urinary, and genital systems Umbilical cord anomalies Abnormalities specific to multiple pregnancies Abnormalities of amniotic fluid volume Abnormalities that elude prenatal detection Incorporating the pictorial strengths of an atlas with the didactic utility of a reference work, Fetal Anomalies: Ultrasound Diagnosis and Postnatal Management is a unique book bridging various specialties that comprise maternal-fetal medicine, such as obstetrics, diagnostic imaging, neonatology, perinatology, surgery, and urology.

The most frequently asked questions that confront the fetal medicine trainee/expert on a daily basis are “Is the finding real or merely an artifact?” and “Is the diagnosis correct?”. However, to be able to find the description of an abnormal ultrasound finding in a textbook, one generally has to search by the definite diagnosis, which has not been done as yet. This uneasy feeling was the first factor that directed the layout of Ultrasound of Congenital Fetal Anomalies: Differential Diagnosis and Prognostic Indicators, Second Edition. Copiously illustrated, the book displays fetal anomalies by scanning view and descriptions of all major ultrasound planes, detailing what can be considered a normal view and what cannot. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Early detection of fetal anomalies (1214 weeks) Ultrasound in fetal infections and in twins The nuchal translucency issue, the newest intracranial translucency as well as the range of congenital anomalies detectable at this gestational age Expanded coverage of heart anomalies, including arrhythmias and early fetal echocardiography The author’s mission continues to be to provide guidance on how to quickly recognize and diagnose congenital fetal anomalies, beginning at the beginning with ultrasound sigh all the way through to final diagnosis.
