Gynaecological Ultrasound in Clinical Practice: Ultrasound Imaging in the Management of Gynaecological Conditions
Ultrasound plays an integral part in the diagnosis and management of many gynaecological conditions; indeed, ultrasound forms part of the RCOG’s mandatory training programme for doctors wishing to specialise in obstetrics and gynaecology.
Gynaecological Ultrasound in Clinical Practice will be of use to both trainees and those already in clinical practice looking for a user-friendly reference guide. The use of ultrasound in gynaecology goes well beyond simple picture recognition: a skilful gynaecological sonographer will bring together scan findings and the clinical scenario to enhance patient care. This leads to targeted investigations and strategies for intervention.
Gynaecological Ultrasound in Clinical Practice covers all aspects of the use of ultrasound in the fields of gynaecology and early pregnancy, with the contents including: postmenopausal bleeding; adnexal masses; pelvic pain; reproductive medicine; miscarriage; ectopic pregnancy; and ovarian cysts.
