ABSTRACT

This multiauthored text is an outstanding review of diagnostic ultrasonography in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. Ultrasonographers and obstetricians who are involved in these ultrasound applications will wish to review the book carefully. With the much improved second edition, The Principles and Practice of Ultrasonography in Obstetrics and Gynecology will become a standard reference for obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound.

As is frequently true with multiauthored texts, there are some strong chapters and some done less well. Among the former, the chapters on normal female pelvis by W. Frederick Sample, embryology by A. Everette James et al, and postpartum ultrasound by Roger C. Sanders are outstanding reviews. A number of chapters are of interest only to a more limited number of readers, but add to the comprehensiveness of this book. These include chapters on Doppler ultrasound, fetal breathing, pelvimetry, and experimental sonofication of tissue.
