Book Description 

This practical reference is the first book to focus exclusively on the uses of ultrasound for office evaluation and management of the infertile woman. The opening section describes ultrasound equipment, basic transvaginal ultrasound techniques, and scanning techniques for each of the pelvic anatomic structures. The second section focuses on evaluation and management of the infertile woman, including ovulation monitoring and evaluation of tubal, pelvic, and uterine conditions. The third section describes the use of ultrasound in the treatment of infertility, including ovulation induction and various assisted reproductive technologies. The fourth section discusses the evaluation and management of early pregnancy, complications resulting from infertility treatment, and ectopic pregnancy. The final section covers the evaluation of gynecologic pathology, including ovarian masses and the postmenopausal pelvis.The book contains nearly 300 sonographic images, including 29 in color. To assist the reader in the orientation of the images, the authors use a unique system of visual icons of the pelvis at the bottom of the images. The icons enable the reader to spatially visualize the position of the vaginal transducer and the direction of the ultrasound beam. Incorporating the icons helps the reader replicate the different probes necessary to obtain the images.
