Reviews

"It is a pleasure to see another book dedicated to the fetal heart. ... It will be a good addition to the libraries of experts in fetal medicine as it offers quick access to relevant information to help understanding of fetal congenital heart disease. It will also be of value to paediatric cardiologists, experienced sonographers and other professionals who wish to extend their knowledge on how to diagnose and manage prenatally detected cardiac abnormalities." (Julene S Carvalho, RAD Magazine, January, 2020)"This presents a practical approach to the diagnosis and management of fetal cardiac diseases. ... This is a good supplement to the other books available on fetal cardiology and echocardiographic examination. The focus is predominantly on echocardiographic examinations, which this book does well." (Aashish Gupta, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 15 , 2019)
