Book Description 

This is the first text/atlas to present state-of-the-art imaging strategies and a detailed discussion of infertility diagnosis and assisted reproduction techniques in one comprehensive book. Written and compiled by a team of international experts, this text demonstrates the latest advances in ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and hysterosalpingography for the treatment of infertility and reproductive endocrine disorders. Other features include a systematic approach to the work-up of the infertile couple, extensive explanations of Doppler images, and detailed views of normal and abnormal pelvic anatomy using the latest imaging modalities. This beautifully illustrated text contains nearly 600 detailed images with 100 in color.
