"In this book the reader can find information on normal fetal anatomy, fetal malformation, invasive prenatal procedures, main fetal syndroms and prenatal infections... The book is rich in illustrative ultrasound images and videos of the ultrasound examinations and can be accessed on the web, which is another way of learning and can be seen as an advantage of this book...Despite detailed information provided on every malformation and syndrome, the book is easy read. Ultrasound images are illustrative and help examiners to interpret their findings and make differential diagnoses. Moreover, a web version of this book and video images of ultrasound examination are available...This is an advantage of the book. Video imaging not only helps us to more easily detect the abnormality and interpret the findings, but will also provide the reader with the information on examination technique when finding these malformations.

Obstetric Imaging is an excellent learning tool recommended for both experienced and less experienced sonographers, sonologists and clinicans."
