Following the Socratic principle that the best way to teach is to ask the right questions, the highly popular Secrets Series® has become an important part of medical education. The "Secrets" approach has given birth to a whole series of soft-cover books in a question-and-answer format. This book provides concise and condensed information in easily understandable language and contains pearls and answers to practical issues in the daily practice of ultrasonography. It highlights key diagnostic sonography concepts, based on organ systems, including obstetrics and gynecology.
