Book Description 

Definitive textbook on diagnostic imaging for reproductive failure. The most comprehensive and up-to-date work in its field, published in large format with many illustrations, including full-color laparoscopy photographs, and covering in depth ultrasonography, hysterosalpingography, Doppler, transcervical tuboplasty, CT scanning, pelvic MRI, hysteroscopy, and laparoscopy. The book opens with a unique review of the basic physics underlying magnetic resonance imaging and continues with main sections on diagnostic imaging for female and male reproductive failure, imaging of the brain for reproductive failure, imaging for treatment, and how to choose a diagnostic method by evaluations of efficacy and cost-effectiveness. Also reviews distension media for hysteroscopy and covers normal and abnormal anatomy. In line with this new books special importance to todays medical community, the text is introduced by a Foreword written by Alan H. DeCherney, M.D., Tufts University School of Medicine.

From Booknews

In this wedding of assisted reproductive technology and clinical medicine, 13 experts in reproductive endocrinology, radiology, and urology provide in-depth coverage of state-of-the-art imaging of the female pelvis (by ultrasonography, Doppler imagining, CT scanning, hysterosalpingography, pelvic MRI, hysteroscopy, and laparoscopy); transcervical tuboplasty; and brain MRI. Two chapters focus on normal and abnormal male anatomy. While ethical considerations are apparently beyond the text's technical scope, the last chapter is devoted to economic evaluations of such diagnostic interventions. Among the illustrations are a dozen color plates. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
