Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology

A Practitioner’s Guide

Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Kathryn A. Gill, MS, RT, RDMS, FSDMS
CME Credits: 15
ISBN: 9780941022804
Format: Hardcover
Catalog No: 11050
Price: $99.00
Winner of the 2015 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Award for excellence in book editorial and design!
Kathy Gill’s full-color textbook is a unique and powerful resource with an engaging clarity of purpose: to teach clinical ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology. Colorful, wonderfully written, exceptionally illustrated, lovely to browse, and authoritative all at once, it is created by and for practitioners of clinical sonography. Sonographers in training and those who teach them will find superbly illustrated and clearly written how-to instruction with dozens of features that make learning easy and—yes!—fun. Registry candidates preparing for their exam in obstetrics and gynecology will find the ARDMS exam topics covered and explained in full and colorful detail. Veteran sonographers and department managers will discover a versatile clinical reference full of facts, tips, explanations, protocols, standard measurements, diagnostic images, and 15 hours of available SDMS-approved CME credit that more than one person may apply for. 649 pages.


1234 illustrations and sonograms demonstrate clinical anatomy,
     patient positions, scanning techniques, normal and abnormal
     findings, and key principles. Images are reproduced in exact
     detail on premium high-gloss paper.

Color boxes and tables provide and reinforce key information at a
     glance—risk factors, teratogens, indications, lab values, differential
     diagnoses, sonographic findings, diagnostic criteria, normal and
     abnormal measurements, anomalies, related conditions, and clinical
     pearls and secrets.

End-of-chapter Scanning Tips and Pitfalls explain common
     situations and errors to avoid.

End-of-chapter Self-Assessment Questions focus and guide your
     study. Answers with clear explanations appear in an appendix to
     the book.

Standard measurements, calculations, and reference data appear in
     an appendix containing 44 tables for fast access.

Current AIUM guidelines are published in an appendix to the book.

Samples of clinical data sheets appear in an appendix to the book.

An extensive glossary defines more than 1000 terms commonly
     encountered in ob/gyn sonography.

CME application and quiz for 15 hours’ SDMS-approved credit appear
     at the end of the book and may be used by more than one reader.
     This feature alone creates exceptional value.
