Product description

This is a highly illustrated, practical introduction to the practice of obstetric ultrasound which provides a step by step guide for those new to ultrasound as well as a source of reference for the more experienced ultrasonographer. It details the use of ultrasound in all aspects of pregnancy and its complications and in many commonly encountered gynaecological situations. Described by a reviewer of the second edition as "almost a DIY guide for all students, doctors, midwives and tutors who want to provide quality service to their clients".
