SUMMARY

Here is a practical, comprehensive text on fetal diagnosis, management and therapy which differs from competing texts in maternal-fetal medicine by focusing on the fetus rather than the pregnant woman. All new technologies in the field, from ulstrasound diagnosis to intrauterine treatment, are placed in perspective for the practicing physician
