With a focus on how to perform and effectively interpret pelvic ultrasound exams, Pelvic Ultrasound Imaging: A Cased-Based
Application offers a unique learning experience that is ideal for ob/gyn and radiology practitioners and residents,
urogynecology practitioners and fellows, diagnostic medical sonographers and those who are studying for Board exams. Current
cases in gynecology and urogynecology are presented in a step-by-step format based on resident and fellow one-on-one
didactic oral case reviews. An expert walk-through for each case’s imaging set includes directive questions to help the
reader perform proper exam assessment. This workbook:
Presents cases in the way a clinical day unfolds, varied and unrelated to the previous case. Cases get progressively
harder, increasingly challenging the reader’s interpretation skills while moving through the text.
Provides step-by-step instruction throughout, including development of 3D volume set skills, reporting nomenclature,
discussion of diagnostic criteria, instrumentation topics, and clinical correlation.
Highlights the importance of critically assessing, not merely diagnosing based on a presumed classic image appearance
for the most common pathologies.
Includes examples of common gynecology cases such as ovarian corpus luteum, hemorrhagic corpus luteum, uterine
leiomyomata, endometrial polyps, and caesarean section scars, as well as more uncommon cases.
Includes examples of common pelvic floor cases such as normal anal sphincter complex and thickened bladder wall, as well as
more uncommon urogynecology pathologies such as rectal vaginal fistula, rectal prolapse, and mesh assessment.
Walks the reader through each case with directive questions to improve diagnostic appraisal.
Includes up to five images per case along with exam findings and brief clinical correlations.
