Preface

There have been some review articles on fetal 3D/4D ultrasound. However, most of those review articles focused on normal and abnormal fetal anatomies. The introduction of new 3D/4D ultrasound techniques such as VOCAL, STIC, inversion mode, etc. would allow for the assessment of fetal weight estimation, fetal organ and placental volume measurements, real-time fetal cardiovascular imaging and fetal behavioral assessment. With recent advancement in the 3D power Doppler ultrasound as well as the quantitative 3D histogram analysis, quantitative 3D power Doppler in the assessment of the vascularization and the blood flow of the fetal organs and placenta have become feasible. To the best of our knowledge, there has been no review volume on these recent advents of 3D/4D fetal ultrasound. This book complies the efforts of 7 well-established experts in fetal 3D/4D ultrasound in reviewing the latest advances in the field, with strong emphasis on the usefulness in clinical practice, its advantage, disadvantages and limitations, and future research on fetal medicine. Therefore, we consider our review volume to be important enough to be published in the form of a single eBook. This would be interesting, and has new information for likely audience of readers for our eBook.
