Atlas of Fetal Echocardiography has attempted to explain the concepts of fetal cardiac imaging in a simplified manner. The book is amply illustrated starting from basic embryology to the diagnosis of structural defects. The basics of Doppler has also been covered. The layout of the book has been well designed for easy reading. I hope the authors will explore this area in greater depths in the years to come and further simplify this complex subject. Ultrasonography and Echocardiography have become the two most common tools for the obstetricians in their day-to-day practice. Their use was previously limited to just biometry and routine detection of anomalies. Nowadays, lots of research and development has been going on in this particular field. With the advent of color Doppler high resolution machine STIC and Continuous Wave Doppler, it has become very easy to scan fetal heart and to detect anomalies. In the routine ultrasonography the sonographer aims at detecting something which is not normal in fetal heart. On the other hand, fetal echocardiography, makes us PASSS in our efforts (Position, Axis, Size, Symmetry and Squeeze). Advancements in technology as well as increased capability of sonographer and sonologist has expanded the use of USG as a diagnostic tool for evaluation of fetal anatomy and fetal heart. In this atlas, we have tried to explain the basic use of these new modalities and we are sure that it would be extremely useful to the beginners entering in this field of diagnostic procedures as well as to those more experienced obstetricians by providing them something new.
