Summary Fetal cardiac assessment is a central part of managing many kinds of high risk pregnancies. There are relatively few full time fetal cardiologists, and as a result diagnosis and management of fetal cardiac disease continues to involve considerable input from a variety of professionals, who need easy access to succinct, up-to-date information on fetal cardiac anatomy, rhythm and function. This handbook provides clinically relevant guidance in an easily-accessible and practical format which is idea for day-to-day use in the clinic.
