Normal and Abnormal Fetal Face Atlas: Ultrasonographic Features by Jean-Marc Levaillant
English | 17 Mar. 2017 | ISBN: 3319437682 | 223 Pages | PDF | 20.83 MB

This atlas offers a guide to studying the fetal face by means of ultrasound analysis. It describes key phases in cranial-facial development, allowing the reader to learn the related semiology from its most simple iteration to the most complex one.


The overall examination of a newborn’s face offers a rich source of information and can guide the general examination. The same applies in the context of fetal ultrasound examination. The analytical study of the fetal face not only makes it possible to screen for anomalies related to the face itself, but also yields valuable insights into the brain, the limbs, and the heart. In addition, it allows ultra-sonographers to unravel the puzzle of fetal dimorphism.
