Fetal Echocardiography is a comprehensive, lavishly illustrated guide to fetal heart scanning for anyone involved in obstetric ultrasound. Authored by a leading pediatric cardiologist with over 30 years of experience, it brings together all the information needed by cardiologists, obstetricians, sonographers or maternal-fetal medicine clinicians in order to obtain clear, high-quality echocardiograms and interpret them. Initial chapters provide the basic principles of echocardiography and how to obtain the standard views, giving numerous illustrations of each standard view and the possible deviations from normal. Subsequent chapters present a complete pictorial representation of almost all malformations recognised in fetal life. An overview of the likely outcome of each malformation is given, backed up by personal data involving nearly 4000 abnormal fetal hearts. Additional chapters cover Fetal Arrhythmias and Early Fetal Heart Scanning. Highly illustrated and full of practical guidance, Fetal Echocardiography is an invaluable resource for all practitioners involved in obstetric scanning.

'This excellent book is a must for any obstetric department.' Synergy - Imaging and Therapy Practice
'This excellent book helps novices increase their understanding and experienced practitioners enhance their knowledge.' Doody's Notes
'… an excellent text, both as a quick reference and for those wishing to read about the subject in more depth. It is also good value, given the very large number of illustrations and the accompanying DVD, and any department providing screening for or diagnosis of congenital heart disease would benefit from having the book available.' The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist online
'Very well laid out, interesting, clear explanations … Would recommend … Excellent.' BMA Medical Book Awards reviewer
'There is much compassion displayed through the application of dedication and reasoning especially within the final eighth chapter, where outcomes are analysed implicitly for the benefit of those yet to be cared for by colleagues, national and international, and its is hugely commendable for that contribution alone to the promotion of excellence in fetal cardiac scanning … All of the main conditions that one is ever likely to encounter in a lifetime of general obstetric scanning are covered in images that run well into double figures for all of the 10 commonest diagnoses. This is, therefore, a personal, or a departmental, collection is you buy his book and the main conditions are also covered on an informative and highly educationally illustrative DVD … Of particular note, there is a bibliography selected for subject merit by the author, instead of references, to guide further study.
