Sonography of the gastrointestinal tract in fetuses, neonates and children entails no known biological risk, permits serial scanning and can provide information unobtainable with any other imaging modality. This book provides a comprehensive account of the current state of the art regarding sonography in this context.An introductory chapter compares the merits of sonography and magnetic resonance imaging of the fetal gastrointestinal tract. Subsequent chapters focus on the technique, pitfalls and findings in a wide variety of applications, including antropyloric diseases bowel obstruction, bowel wall thickening, colitis, appendicitis, intussusception, some abdominal wall and umbilical abnormalities, intraperitoneal tumors, and trauma. In each case the sonographic morphology is considered in depth with the aid of high-quality illustrations. A concluding chapter comprises a quiz based on 15 case reports. "Gastrointestinal Tract Sonography in Fetuses and Children" will be of value to all with an interest in this field.
