Over the last decade, gynecology has seen a dramatic increase in the diagnosis, techniques and management of many conditions affecting women. Investigative modalities like ultrasonogram, CT and MRI have greatly improved the accuracy of diagnosis and improved management techniques, resulting in better outcomes. The current edition of Clinical Gynecology comprehensively deals with the recent developments in the field of gynecology, taking care to retain time-tested practices. Separate chapters on Chemotherapy and Radiology in gynecology highlight the current developments in these two dynamic fields. The recent MCI recommendations as to what should be included in the teaching curriculum have been incorporated to the extent possible. This book would be of immense benefit to students as well as practitioners.
