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 perinatal outcome of MC twins with selective IUGR (sIUGR). STUDY DESIGN A prospective study, which included three groups of MC twins: Group A, uncomplicated MC twin pregnancies (n = 91); group B, sIUGR with normal umbilical artery Doppler (n = 19); and group C, sIUGR with abnormal (absence or reversed EDV) umbilical artery(More)
OBJECTIVES The purposes of this study were to identify the fetal hippocampus and fornix using 3-dimensional sonography, to measure their curved length during pregnancy, and to describe a systematic method for volume data set analysis of the fetal hippocampus and fornix. METHODS Three-dimensional volumes of the fetal brain were acquired prospectively in 34(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prediction of microcephaly at birth (micB) using established and two new reference ranges for fetal head circumference (HC) and to assess whether integrating additional parameters can improve prediction. METHODS Microcephaly in utero was defined as a fetal HC 3SD below the mean for gestational age according to Jeanty et al.'s(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the normal perimeter and area of the three orthogonal planes (axial, sagittal and coronal) of the fetal Sylvian fissure along pregnancy using 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasound. METHODS Ultrasound volumes of fetal head were acquired prospectively in 55 fetuses between 12 and 33 gestational weeks. All(More)
