From the Publisher
Uniquely comprehensive, color-illustrated clinical reference text on all aspects of using ultrasound in the management of infertility. In 28 chapters the book presents, first, the background knowledge clinicians and sonographers need to understand this new modality, and then the specific uses of ultrasound and Doppler in assessing and evaluating the causes of infertility as well as how to use interventional ultrasound in medically assisted reproduction and with ectopic pregnancies. Also covers aging and infertility, three-dimensional ultrasonography, and early echographic and Doppler assessment of early embryo development and placentation. Includes bibliographic references and index.
Ultrasonography has greatly facilitated advances in medically- assisted
conception. Twenty-two papers detail ultrasound assessment of fertility
barriers, sonographic evaluation of candidates for in vitro fertilization, the
value of color Doppler in egg donor programs, and interventional ultrasound in
human reproduction. Illustrated with the latest color Doppler as well as
standard sonograms. Kupesic is with the Medical School U. of Zagreb, Croatia; de
Ziegler is a reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist at the
Hopital de Nyon, Switzerland. The 15 other contributors are affiliated with
institutions in North America, Europe, and Israel. Annotation c. Book News,
