Fetal Cardiovascular Imaging, edited by Drs. Rychik and Tian, is the most complete video atlas available in this field – providing the detailed visual guidance you need to successfully identify a full range of fetal heart disorders. Complied by the team at the Cardiac Center at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, this Expert Consult site and accompanying atlas-style text guide the acquisition and interpretation of fetal images for accurate diagnosis and effective management. Vivid color images, drawings, pathologic specimens and diagnostic algorithms facilitate tracking the progress of development of over 100 fetal heart problems.

Key Features

  • Enhance your cardiac imaging skills with a video library demonstrating imaging of the normal heart, and the imaging presentation of more than 100 different fetal heart problems.
  • Recognize potential problems using views of the normal heart in development for comparative diagnosis.
  • Get comprehensive coverage of cardiac anatomy, pathophysiology, natural history and disease management.

See developing and existing problems as they appear in practice thanks to an abundance of vivid color images, drawings, pathologic specimens, and diagnostic algorithms.
