Fetal Cardiology Simplified
A practical manual
by Gurleen Sharland BSc MD FRCP
Paperback Book (300 Pages)
December 2012
Fetal cardiology has developed dramatically into a subspecialty in the past 25 years. The majority of
people examining the fetal heart are not 'experts' in fetal cardiology and therefore find interpreting
images, particularly in case of abnormality, rather difficult. This book is designed as a practical guide, to
be kept near the ultrasound machine, for all those performing fetal heart scans, but without the expertise
of a fetal cardiologist. The aim is to allow the user to recognize the common forms of fetal cardiac
abnormality and to appreciate the associated lesions and outcome. The book has a large number of
illustrations to enable the reader to visualize the different types of problem and the various forms in which
they may manifest.

There are relatively few books published in the field of fetal cardiology. This book is aimed at all
sonographers, obstetricians and radiologists performing obstetric ultrasound scans and at paediatric
cardiologists, both at consultant and trainee level. Thus, this book should fulfill this unmet need in the
market, although it is not designed as a comprehensive reference textbook in fetal cardiology.
