Foreword

Hardly any area in medicine has experienced such dramatic technical advances during the past four decades as diagnostic ultrasound. With the event and evolution of three-dimensional ultrasound technology during the past 20 years, we arrived at the threshold of non-invasive diagnosis. The progression from 2D to 3D has brought with it a variety of new options for storing and processing image data and displaying anatomical structures. This technology gives ultrasound the multiplanar capabilities that previously were reserved for CT and MRI. The simultaneous 3D display of organs and their vessels, either in fetuses or in tumors, may perhaps in future form the basis for a better understanding of physiological and pathological features in these systems.

STIC and all his by products provide the best examples of both didactic and antiphobic tools that can help to overcome the challenge of fetal cardiography.

The newer development of 4D ultrasound available now, due to the fast processing computers, makes studies of the intra uterine fetal behavior possible. The possibilities of ultrasound in obstetrics and gynaecology have been endless and I seriously believe we have just skimmed the surface of this wonderful technology and hope for its further development in future.

I wish this book a good success.

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.
