About this book


This book provides a wealth of detailed hysteroscopic images, illustrating the various gynecological pathologies that can be directly diagnosed by hysteroscopy.

Providing comprehensive coverage, the book examines each pathology on the basis of concrete images, offering readers support with the diagnostic evaluation. This is especially important when there are recrudescent pathologies, such as TBC, which can often confuse physicians in the context of diagnosis, and with regard to oncological, infectious and infertility issues.

Written by prominent experts in the field, this atlas offers an extremely useful and comprehensive tool for all gynecologists, which can support them to overcome any diagnostic doubts and arrive at an accurate diagnosis.

“Although the book is intended for practicing gynecologists, students and residents training in hysteroscopy will also find this book enormously helpful in understanding findings they encounter during hysteroscopic procedures. … this atlas can be a highly valuable reference for practicing gynecologists who routinely perform hysteroscopic procedures, as well as those training in hysteroscopy. The collection of images is impressive and the book is comprehensive in its coverage of the majority of gynecological conditions that are best evaluated with hysteroscopy.” (David E Rogers, Doody's Book Reviews, September 18, 2020)
