Background. To survey the accuracy of fetal gender determination during first trimester screening and scan for congenital anomalies. Methods. A prospective observational study was performed on 496 singleton pregnancies at the first trimester ultrasound screening. The doctor was a certified sonographer of first trimester screening by the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF). Ultrasound examination was performed on a GE Voluson 730 Pro, transabdominally, between 11 and 13+6 weeks. Both transverse and… Expand
Ultrasound evaluation of fetal gender at 12-14 weeks.
TLDR
Fetal gender may reliably be determined when CRL ≥ 60 mm (gestational age ≥ 12+2). Expand
The ultrasound identification of fetal gender at the gestational age of 11–12 weeks
TLDR
The present study had a much higher gender identification accuracy compared to other studies, and the final success of fetal gender identification was about 91% in the 11th and 12th weeks of pregnancy. Expand
Sonographic determination of fetal gender in the second and third trimesters in a private hospital in Enugu, southeast Nigeria
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the accuracy of fetal gender determination increased with gestational age, from 97.1% in the second trimester to 98.5%" in the third trimester. Expand
Accuracy rate of sex determination in the first trimester ultrasonography
TLDR
The sex determination in ultrasonographic examinations between weeks 11 and 13 during pregnancy has an increasing accuracy rate as clinician’s experience increases. Expand

TLDR
This study presents a new sonographic sign for early fetal sex determination that has not been previously explored and appears to be an accurate tool but it requires further validation in larger series. Expand

  • 2012
TLDR
Evaluation of most part of the fetal anatomical structures is feasible with high accuracy in the first trimester of pregnancy, and visualization of the majority of the targeted fetal organs improves from 11 to 13 weeks. Expand
First trimester determination of fetal gender by ultrasonographic measurement of anogenital distance: A cross-sectional study
TLDR
AGD is helpful as an ultrasonographic marker that can determine fetal gender in the first trimester, especially after 12 wks, according to the results of this cross-sectional study. Expand

TLDR
Increasing maternal BMI negatively influences image acquisition during the first trimester for gender determination, but does not decrease the accuracy of correct gender assignment if the image is obtained. Expand
Accuracy of Ultrasonography in Fetal Gender Determination in 11 to 14 Week of Gestational Age
TLDR
The results showed that ultrasonography at 11 to 14 weeks of gestation had high sensitivity and specificity in detecting gender, and its sensitivity in female gender determination was higher. Expand
Accuracy of sonographic fetal gender determination: predictions made by sonographers during routine obstetric ultrasound scans
TLDR
The accuracy of sonographer predictions of fetal gender during routine ultrasounds in the first trimester was investigated, as requests from parents wanting to know the gender of their fetus at this early scan are becoming increasingly common. Expand

Fetal sexing by ultrasound in the second trimester: maternal preference and professional ability
TLDR
The majority of prospective parents wish to know the sex of their child, and, in most cases, it is possible to determine the fetal sex at the time of the routine anomaly scan, which would appear reasonable to provide this information. Expand
Fetal Sex Determination by Ultrasound Scan in the Second and Third Trimesters
Sector real-time ultrasound examinations of the fetal perineal area were done on fetuses ranging in age from 14 weeks to term. An attempt was made to determine fetal sex in 404 consecutive cases.Expand

TLDR
There is extensive evidence that effective screening for major chromosomal abnormalities can be provided in the first trimester of pregnancy, and care givers who perform first-trimester screening should be trained appropriately, and their results should be subjected to external quality assurance.

UK multicentre project on assessment of risk of trisomy 21 by maternal age and fetal nuchal-translucency thickness at 10–14 weeks of gestation
TLDR
Assessment of risk by a combination of maternal age and fetal nuchal-translucency thickness, measured by ultrasonography at 10-14 weeks of gestation, finds that selection of the high-risk group for invasive testing by this method allows the detection of about 80% of affected pregnancies. Expand
Fetal DNA in Maternal Circulation of First‐Trimester Spontaneous Abortions

Fetal DNA is present in the maternal circulation of first-trimester spontaneous abortions and SRY-specific signals were detected in 11 women indicating that the abortions were male. Expand

TLDR
To assess the accuracy of fetal sex determination at 11–14 weeks of gestation, a large number of studies have used the second trimester as a baseline for sex determination. Expand
Isolating fetal cells from maternal blood. Advances in prenatal diagnosis through molecular technology.
TLDR
Isolating and analyzing fetal cells from maternal blood is clearly possible and several key biologic questions remain--the optimal cells for isolation, frequency of cells in maternal blood, timing during gestation for maternal blood sampling, and the likelihood of persistence of fetal cells after delivery.
