BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Monochorionic twin pregnancies complicated by the IUFD of 1 twin are associated with substantial morbidity to the survivor twin. The aim of this study was to determine whether fetal sonography, T2 MR imaging, and DWI can diagnose acute cerebral lesions in the survivor of an MC twin pregnancy shortly after fetal death of the co-twin.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of various new models of 3- and 4-dimensional (3D and 4D) ultrasound (US) applications in prenatal assessment of fetal cardiac anomalies. METHODS Volume data sets of 81 fetuses with fetal cardiac anomalies, as previously diagnosed by 2D US, were acquired by 3D and cine 4D using spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC)(More)
Three-dimensional and four-dimensional ultrasound (3D/4D US) technology can be easily applied to routine prenatal diagnosis and can provide images of the fetal face that cannot be achieved with two-dimensional ultrasound (2D US) [1–7]. The most recent 3D/4D US technology facilitates the 3D/4D US examinations even for the less trained sonographer and gives(More)
OBJECTIVE Congenital anomalies are the leading cause of infant mortality in the United States, and congenital heart defects (CHDs) are the most common type of birth defects. Recently, 4-dimensional ultrasonography (4DUS) with spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC) has been introduced for fetal echocardiography. Accumulating evidence indicates that 4DUS(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to establish the normality of the fetal vermis, ie, the time of appearance of the primary fissure, as well as its measurements between 18 and 26 weeks' gestation, using 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasonography. METHODS A prospective cross-sectional study of normal singleton pregnancies was conducted. Examinations were(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this research was to evaluate the ability of three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound for demonstrating the palate of fetuses at high risk for cleft palate. METHOD Fifty-seven fetuses at high risk for cleft palate were referred for specialist ultrasound at 12-40 weeks' gestation. A detailed assessment of palate was made using both(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of primary cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in the third trimester on fetal outcome. DESIGN Observational study. SETTING Four perinatal departments in tertiary hospitals in Israel. POPULATION Twenty-eight women with primary CMV infection acquired after 25 weeks of gestation. METHODS Prenatal evaluation included(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the outcomes of pregnancy and newborn following an event of maternal medical compromise during pregnancy. METHODS A retrospective study was performed on all patients hospitalized following an event of medical compromise during pregnancy. Medical compromise was divided to acute or chronic bleeding, major or complicated operations, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Isolated levocardia is a rare type of situs inversus in which the heart is in the normal levo position, but the abdominal viscera are in the dextro position. We aim to describe our experience with prenatal diagnosis and management in fetuses with isolated levocardia. METHODS Of all the cases referred to our tertiary ultrasound unit, 3 cases of(More)
OBJECTIVE To construct a growth chart of the mandible throughout gestation. METHODS A prospective cross-sectional study of normal singleton pregnancies was conducted. Measurements of the fetal mandibular transverse and antero-posterior diameters were performed with high-resolution transvaginal and transabdominal ultrasonography in 490 pregnant women with(More)
