The fetus has gained considerable moral status in our society. In a parallel manner, the stature of fetal medicine has increased, as intense basic and applied research has been translated into novel approaches to the clinical evaluation of management of the fetus in utero.
Fetal Medicine, edited by Charles H. Rodeck and Martin J. Whittle, is a comprehensive text devoted to the challenges of this growing multidisciplinary field. The editors have tapped the knowledge of numerous international contributors whose expertise encompasses several different clinical disciplines and research backgrounds. Ten years in the making, the text is nevertheless current in both scope and detail.
