High Performance and Precision Ultrasound in Obstetric Imaging

Clinical Need: High precision obstetric imaging

Within the field of obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) is fundamental to the management of high-risk pregnancies. MFM enables care of pregnant women who have specific medical problems (e.g. heart or kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes, and thrombophilia), pregnant women who are at risk for pregnancy-related complications (e.g. preterm labor, pre-eclampsia, and twin or triplet pregnancies), and pregnant women with at-risk fetuses. Fetuses may be at risk because of chromosomal or congenital abnormalities, maternal disease, infection, genetic disease, and growth restriction, and may require advanced procedures such as targeted fetal assessment using ultrasound and Doppler.
