The introduction of new diagnostic technologies such as Doppler
technology and three-dimensional ultrasonography has changed the
nature of perinatal medicine. However, the rush to introduce new
procedures has sometimes compromised the rigor necessary in the
initial analyses of their uses. The field is moving ahead so
rapidly that health-care protocols can quickly lose their validity
and controversy soon arises. Controversies in Perinatal Medicine
examines the current state of the science through the lens of
evidence-based medicine. With expert editorial direction and
contributions from leaders in the field, the book guides readers
through the maze of new technologies and procedures and explores
the issues they raise in terms of scientific methodology. It
focuses on selected issues in quality care of the fetus and the
mother; early diagnosis and decision making; how and if new
diagnostic technologies affect outcomes; contributions of ultrasou
nd technology to the body of knowledge; screening and treatment for
prematurity; changes in cesarean section rates; and ethical
issues.Controversies in Perinatal Medicine gives you a clear
picture of the developments in diagnosis and treatment made
possible by new technologies and the insight to resolve the issues
involved in using them.
