Over the last 25 years, the advances in ultrasound have paralleled advances in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). ART could not even be practiced or considered today without imaging. Ultrasound has become the most important and widely used tool in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. Ultrasound evaluation is one of the first steps to assess the cause of infertility; the three areas of evaluation are the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. Ultrasound allows physicians to diagnose ovarian reserve but also pathologies such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, or other ovarian cysts that can impact fertility. The results of this initial exam immediately affect the decisions in the management of the patient’s condition. When fertility treatments begin, ultrasound is used in almost any interaction with the patient in order to monitor follicular development and endometrial response; ultrasound guidance is also vital for embryo retrieval and transfer (ET).
Ultrasound Imaging in Reproductive Medicineprovides a comprehensive survey of the use of ultrasonography in the female pelvis for physicians, nurses, and ultrasonographers actively involved in reproductive medicine and infertility. With a critical evaluation of advantages and disadvantages, the book covers traditional and new technologies, including three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound for ovarian reserve, ovarian monitoring and endometrial cavity assessment, Ultrasound, MRI and CT evaluation of tubal patency, MRI guided ultrasound procedures for treatment of uterine fibroids, imaging techniques of the embryo and embryo transfer, and pulsed color Doppler techniques. 3D ultrasound to assess ovarian and endometrial volume and 3D automated monitoring of follicles are also covered in detail with up to date references.

From the book reviews:
“This is without doubt one of the best books I have had the pleasure of reading that covers the clinical and technical role of ultrasound in this particular field of medical imaging. … it should prove of particular value to clinical and ultrasound personnel as part of their education in respect of reproductive medicine. A very worthwhile read for all and I remain very grateful for the opportunity to review this excellent book.” (Bill Smith, RAD Magazine, March, 2015)
“This is a general overview of the use of ultrasonography in the field of reproductive medicine. … This book is written at the level of the professional, and appears geared toward gynecologists, radiologists, reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialists, and nursing staff. … This is a very useful and informative book, well written with helpful images.” (Kasey Reynolds, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Can physicians, nurses, and ultrasonographers imagine infertility diagnosis and treatment and assisted reproductive technologies (ART) today without ultrasound?Ultrasound Imaging in Reproductive Medicineprovides the most comprehensive know-how of modern imaging for all who are actively involved in ART and reproductive medicine. All that you wanted to know about the role of ultrasound - from the first time a woman comes to your clinic because of infertility to when she will conceive - is discussed in this book.
With a critical evaluation of its advantages,Ultrasound Imaging in Reproductive Medicinecovers traditional and emerging imaging technologies, including three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound for evaluating ovarian reserve, uterine cavity and tubal patency assessment, and ovarian and endometrial response for treatment. 3D ultrasound to assess ovarian and endometrial volume and 3D automated monitoring of follicles are covered in detail with up-to-date references. Imaging techniques of the embryo and embryo transfer, pulsed color Doppler techniques, and MRI-guided ultrasound procedures for treatment of uterine fibroids are also presented. See better, do ART better.


Discusses new developments in ultrasonography—including 3D and Doppler blood flow assessment—and their relevance in reproductive medicine and gynecology  
Includes original ultrasound and radiological images to complement the text, showing clinical examples and practical ways to improve successful outcomes for the patients  
An invaluable source for gynecologists, infertility specialists, ultrasonographers, and radiologists​


This inclusive guide shows how new techniques in ultrasonography such as 3D imaging and Doppler blood flow assessment can enhance the practice of reproductive medicine and gynecology. It is enhanced with genuine ultrasound and radiological images throughout.
