This book comprehensively reviews the medical management issues of pregnant patients who require, or have already had, diagnostic medical imaging studies. Included are discussions on radiation risks, the methods, pitfalls and uncertainties of assessing radiation dose, and the relationship of dose to biological effects on the unborn. It progressively reviews the decision-making process for the treatment of a pregnant woman who has medical problems that require diagnostic examination using x-rays, radioisotopes, ultrasound, or magnetic resonance. It provides medical physicists, genetic coounselors, and physicians with information on how to put into perspective the potential risks to the unborn child. Also included are guidelines for counseling women and their families. This second edition has been entirely updated.
Part I reviews radiobiology, radiation effects, and the physics of diagnostic radiation for x-ray, nuclear, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance studies. Part II discusses the management of pregnant patients who need radiological evaluation, and Part III reviews the management of patients who were pregnant when a radiologic procedure was done. Recommended reading for every physician, genetic counselor, and medical physicist responsible for the health care of female patients.Review:
