More than 1,600 images--including full-color throughout--provide a true-to-life view of ultrasound findings.

This edition includes brief tables of teratogens and information on genetic markers.

The best overall textbook in ultrasound prenatal diagnosis.Everyone should have a copy!
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.
