This evidence-based book shows how to use ultrasound to identify potential problems and 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) safety of ultrasound
Obstetric Ultrasound is a straightforward resource, uniquely written to be used by clinicians to optimize their contemporary management of pregnancy through the thoughtful, evidencebased, application of ultrasound.
