What is the content of  "Doppler Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology"?

The current standards of practice in Doppler ultrasound are described, and information presented on the most recent developments in clinical practice and technology. The basic and physical principles of Doppler ultrasound are also clearly explained.

Among other topics, the chapters on obstetric applications address the use of Doppler for fetal examination, including investigation of the fetal cerebral circulation; Doppler echocardiography of the fetal heart; and the role of Doppler in cases of post-term pregnancy and multiple gestation.

The final part of the book focuses on the use of Doppler ultrasound in patients with gynecologic conditions, including ectopic pregnancy, infertility, benign disorders, and malignancies.

Written by distinguished experts in the field, this superbly illustrated book will be a must-have reference for maternal-fetal medicine specialists, obstetrician-gynecologists, radiologists, and sonographers and will also be of value for researchers in the field

Dev Maulik, MD, PhD, FACOG, FRCOG, is Professor and Chair, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology; the Senior Associate Dean of Women’s Health; Chair, Department of Maternal Fetal Medicine, Children’s Mercy Hospital; and Professor of Bioinformatics at UMKC School of Medicine, Kansas City, Missouri. 

Professor Maulik pioneered the development of Doppler ultrasound for fetal assessment, especially Doppler and live 3D fetal echocardiography, and umbilical artery Doppler ultrasound. His current research interests include translation research in pregnancy complications including fetal growth restriction. He founded the International Perinatal Doppler Society in 1989, which for many years acted as a pioneering international scientific forum for the development and application of Doppler ultrasound in women’s health. He also collaboratively established a quaternary perinatal center offering advanced integrated multidisciplinary care for congenital heart disease and other malformations. He serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Maternal Fetal and Neonatal Medicine,  has edited six books, and published well over 200 articles and book chapters. He has been a grant reviewer and consultant for the National Institutes of Health from for over two decades. He had the privilege of organizing and co-chairing the NICHD workshop on Doppler, and also served as a member of the NICHD Steering Committee on Psycho-Biological Development of the Fetus and Co-Chaired, Fetal and Neonatal Brain Damage, NICHD Conference on Vasoactive Substances and Free Radicals in Perinatal Biology.

Dr. Maulik is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and has been recognized by various national and international organizations, and the City of New York. 

Christoph Lees is Professor of Obstetrics as Imperial College London;  Honorary Consultant in Obstetrics and Head of Fetal Medicine at the Centre for Fetal Care, Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust; and Visiting Professor KU Leuven (Belgium).

Professor Lees’ research interest is on fetal assessment and in particular the use of Doppler ultrasound to assess the health of the baby, scanning in labour, and non-invasive fetal surgery. He is the Chief Investigator of The Trial of Umbilical and Fetal Flow in Europe (TRUFFLE), a Collaboration of Centres across Europe; co-founder of the International Working Group of Maternal Haemodynamics; Board member of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ISUOG), chairman of the ISUOG Doppler and vascular imaging group and member of the ISUOG Safety Committee

Professor Lees was awarded £2.2m grant from the Medical Research Council for first in human studies of high-intensity focused ultrasound in 2017, and a £2.5m grant from the NIHR in 2019 to undertake the TRUFFLE 2 RCT.  In 2020 Professor Lees was awarded £253k by the MRC for the PANCOVID project, a Global registry of women affected by COVID-19 during pregnancy. He has published widely in scientific journals and has authored textbooks on fetal growth restriction, maternal haemodynamics and the widely read Dewhurst’s Textbook of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
