A diagnostic atlas 2nd edition
Descriptif détaillé : Fetal Radiology - A diagnostic atlas 2nd edition
Postnatally, the prenatal diagnosis has to be verified. To this end, fetal radiography is an effective, simple and economic way to establish a diagnosis or to narrow the number of diagnostic possibilities sufficiently to enable pathological, biochemical or molecular studies to be used in the quest for a specific diagnosis. Equally important, a correct diagnosis is required for correct prognostication and parental counseling.
This book has been written to assist in the postnatal diagnosis of fetal errors of skeletal development.
