about this item

Baun presents this illustrated text on OB/GYN sonography, geared toward review for the ARDMS exam and continuing medical education for experienced practitioners. The first part, dealing with obstetrics, discusses features detectable in the first trimester, the placenta and umbilical cord, and biometric monitoring of the fetus before reviewing the individual organ systems of the fetus and how to evaluate their health using ultrasound. The end of this section addresses sonographic indicators for genetic testing and considerations during high risk pregnancies, including multiple gestations. The second part, focusing on gynecology, discusses how normal and pathological anatomy and physiology appear to ultrasound, investigation of causes of infertility, and gynecology applications for pediatric and postmenopausal patients. The last part addresses technical aspects, including instrumentation, physical principles influencing interpretation of images, choice of technique, and patient care protocols and guidelines. Several appendices include answers to chapter review questions and resources for studying for the ARDMS exam and obtaining CME credit. The topic of elective termination of pregnancy is specifically excluded from this text. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
