Written by the world's preeminent authorities on diagnostic ultrasound, the Second Edition of this bestseller 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. This edition includes brief tables of teratogens and information on genetic markers.

The book assisted me in a complicated case of an atypical left hypoplastic heart syndrome. Very useful in those rare atypical congenital heart disease cases where ultrasound is paramount.
