Hysterosalpingo-Contrast Sonography : An Atlas and Textbook
This is the first English language reference work on the new technique of HyCoSy, evaluating its use as an early step in the diagnosis of infertility. The book introduces the topic of contrast agents and compares HyCoSy with other techniques for testing tubal patency and formation of the uterine cavity. This very practical book is highly illustrated and deals with pulse wave and colour Doppler. Newcomers to the use of ultrasound in gynaecology, gynaecologists in training and ultrasonographers will find this an invaluable guide to an important new minor invasive technique.
