how best to manage them. Working backwards from the fetal finding or maternal problem,
this practical resource explores potential diagnostic routes and management plans.
Throughout the book, the author uses ‘case in point’ examples to focus on how to extract
the most useful information from a standard ultrasound examination. Dr. Hobbins, who
has spent more than three decades using ultrasound in a perinatal setting, also thoroughly
explores vital issues such as comprehensive examination of the fetal anatomy, the meaning of various abnormal findings, how ultrasound can be used to enhance the management of obstetrical
complications, dealing with discrepant biometry, diabetes and hypertension, advanced maternal age, preterm labor, intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and safety of ultrasound.
