This is the only book of its kind in prenatal diagnosis that details the most common sonographically detectable fetal syndromes. It has an easy-to-follow approach of using lists and patterns of malformations to generate a differential diagnosis of the possible syndrome involved. The reader is then led to the more detailed description of each syndrome to determine the exact final diagnosis. The new edition incorporates 3D ultrasound throughout the book, as well as 20 syndromes not previously covered.
Includes more than 500 new images, many of which are 3D ultrasound images.
Covers 20 new syndromes, including Perlman Syndrome, Cerebro-Costo-Mandibular Syndrome, Van der Woude Syndrome, Septo-Optic Dysplasia, Saethre-Chotzen Syndrome, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, Congenital High Airway Obstruction Syndrome (CHAOS), Cloacal Extrophy Sequence, Megacystis-Microcolon-Intestinal Hypoperistalsis Syndrome, Opitz Syndrome, and DiGeorge Syndrome.
Takes full advantage of a new full color design to make reference even easier.
Presents ultrasound video ciips as they would appear in practice on the bonus DVD.
Cross-references sonographic fetal malformations with various syndromes to use patterns of malformation to arrive at the correct diagnosis.
Shows the specific features of each syndrome to help you determine how detectable the syndrome is or how likely the fetus is to have the syndrome.
Offers up-to-date information on how to manage borderline sonographic findings.
Helps you to not only identify what syndrome a given set of malformations is likely to represent, but also understand the clinical implications of that syndrome.
