About this book

Introduction

This book provides assistance in preparing for and conducting screening or diagnostic ultrasound examinations of the fetal brain in all stages of pregnancy. Readers are provided with: abundantly illustrated descriptions of studies conducted on normal brain structures using all conventional and 3D/4D ultrasound techniques; a detailed description of the main structures of the brain; photographs of fetal pathology specimens that may be used to compare the results of imaging techniques with the anatomical reality; and practical advice and technical tips. The second part of this book presents a clear and informative overview of fetal brain pathologies, combining a wealth of detailed images and precise descriptions.
