Library Journal starred review: "Using 250 diagnostic ultrasound images, Harvard radiology professors Doubilet and Carol B. Benson present a marvelous book charting the growth of babies in the womb.... The authors well explain the different types of ultrasound and their medical uses, especially the 3D images that show the baby's outer surface and the 2D images revealing the internal development of organs.
