BMA Medical Book Awards 2016?: BMA Medical Book of the Year 2016? and Obstetrics and Gynaecology - First Prize
The British Medical Association honored A Practical Guide to Fetal Echocardiography: Normal and Abnormal Hearts. 3rd Edition with these prestigious awards.

"This beautifully produced book is much more than the `practical guide' it claims to be. It also brings in information about differential diagnosis, prognosis and outcome to make it a comprehensive textbook in fetal cardiology for the imaging specialist. As such, it is a worthy winner for the BMA medical book of the year award," said Mark Porter, BMA Council Chair in reference to "A Practical Guide to Fetal Echocardiography: Normal and Abnormal Hearts."
"The third edition of this wonderful guide to fetal echocardiography includes access to a website with the online version."
"The audience is maternal-fetal medicine physicians and trainees, although sonographers would also find the book helpful."
"The book begins with an excellent discussion of the rationale for cardiac imaging, and it is broken down into specific anomalies in addition to techniques."
"This is one of the best books that I have reviewed in some time. I will be referring it to my fellows for issues regarding cardiac images."
