vast experience has been gained over the past decade in safely transporting, monitoring, and imaging neonates, a highly vulnerable patient group. technological advances in mri hardware such as higher field strength systems, multi-channel coils, higher gradient performance, and mr compatible incubators with integrated antennae laid the ground for more detailed, higher resolution anatomical mr imaging. this issue provides separate reviews on the use of mr imaging in the evaluation of encephalopathy, postmortems, spinal dysraphia, and inflicted brain injury as well as neonatal neuro mr imaging and mr-guided cardiovascular interventions.

the first book to synthesize relevant, critically reviewed data for application to the diagnosis and treatment of prenatal patients— updated and in full color
a doody’s core title for 2011!
5 star doody’s review!
“the book is comprehensive, concise, well illustrated, and an extremely valuable resource for perinatal healthcare providers….this book has rapidly become a go-to reference in the perinatal field and this new edition confirms its place as the gold standard in the field. perinatologists will find this to be an essential part of their library. as more obstetric practitioners do investigative sonographic procedures in their offices, this book will be a valuable resource for them as well. the new edition is overdue and most welcome.”–doody’s review service
“this invaluable up-to-date reference is a must have guide especially in non-tertiary care centers where the various experts may not be readily available to further guide the family and plan the rest of the antepartum, peripartum and postpartum care.”–center for advanced fetal care newsletter
fetology: diagnosis and management of the fetal patient offers a cross-disciplinary approach that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of obstetrics, pediatrics, and surgery to help you effectively diagnose and treat fetal patients. fetology considers the full implications of a fetal sonographic or chromosomal diagnosis—from prenatal management to long-term outcome—for an affected child. here, you’ll find all the insights you need to answer the questions of parents faced with a diagnosis of a fetal abnormality—and present them with a coordinated therapeutic plan.
