Divided into three sections, the book begins with an introduction to the use of ultrasound, followed by its application in both pregnant women and in the diagnosis of gynaecological disorders.

The new edition has been fully revised and includes new chapters on fallopian tube ultrasound, HD live Silhouette and HD live Flow, 3D ultrasound in prenatal diagnosis, foetal face, and 4D ultrasound. A complete section on Foetal Therapy has also been added covering stem cell and gene therapy, ultrasound guided interventions, and open foetal surgery.

Authored by recognised experts from Croatia and the USA, this comprehensive manual is enhanced by nearly 2000 ultrasound images, illustrations and tables.
