Ultrasound is the backbone of modern obstetric and gynecology practice. Recent advances and technological break through in diagnostic ultrasound, including the color Doppler, power Doppler, 3D and 4D imaging have led ultrasound to surpass the expectations of Sir Ian Donald, its visionary father. Elaborates about application of ultrasound for sonographic assessment of the umbilical cord, fetal anatomy, abnormalities, etc. Gives high quality ultrasound images of the fetus, gynecology and infertility.
