This practical guide covers all aspects of gynaecological ultrasound, focusing on good technique, the ultrasound machine and reporting. Written by experts with a strong reputation for training in the field, this book takes a 'tips and tricks' approach. Chapters cover topics such as equipment familiarization, principles of transvaginal ultrasound, the awkward uterus, the difficult ovary, and ART-related procedures. The authors discuss the use of both basic ultrasound and 3D machines, and provide tips on how to optimize the image and gain useful clinical information even in the most challenging of assessments. With a multitude of images included to train the eye to identify normal anatomy and common pathologies, chapter summary boxes and case-based examples also provide an easy reference for assessing conditions and lesions. This book will greatly improve the scanning technique of trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology, sonographers, reproductive medicine practitioners, and gynaecologists of any level.

Reviews for Gynaecological Ultrasound Scanning: Tips and Tricks
'Gynaecological Ultrasound Scanning: Tips and Tricks is a concise, well-structured handbook that will support and develop sonography technique in novice trainees and experienced practitioners alike. This book provides a valuable, clinically relevant text, which will instruct, develop and refine ultrasound examination technique and interpretation across the whole spectrum of gynaecology practice. The 'Tips and Tricks' approach is informative and accessible, and highlights a large number of wise clinical snippets that will be of value even to those with a wealth of experience ... This book is highly recommended. It is easy to read cover to cover and is equally satisfying to dip into as an atlas of normal anatomy and common gynaecological pathology.'
