This pilot study was carried out to find the feasibility of analyzing the maturity of the fetal lung using ultrasound images. [...] Key Method A region of interest of 64/spl times/64 pixels was used for extracting the features. Various textural features were computed from the fetal lung and liver images. The ratios of fetal lung to liver feature values were investigated as possible indexes for classifying the images into those from mature (reduced pulmonary risk) and immature (possible pulmonary risk) lung.Expand
Feasibility and Reproducibility of Fetal Lung Texture Analysis by Automatic Quantitative Ultrasound Analysis and Correlation with Gestational Age
TLDR
Fetal lung texture analysis measured by the AQUA software demonstrated a strong correlation with gestational age, which supports further research to explore the use of this technology to the noninvasive prediction of fetal lung maturity. Expand

TLDR
This pilot study was carried out to find the feasibility for detecting anomalies in placental growth due to the implications of gestational diabetics by considering the stereo image mapping based on wavelet analysis for 2D reconstruction. Expand
Performance of an automatic quantitative ultrasound analysis of the fetal lung to predict fetal lung maturity.
TLDR
Fetal lung ultrasound textures extracted by AQUA provided robust features to predict TDx-FLM results, and presented a sensitivity 95.1%, specificity 85.7%, and an accuracy 90.3% to predict a mature or immature lung. Expand
Fetal lung segmentation using texture-based boundary enhancement and active contour models
Low signal noise ratio (SNR) of the ultrasound images makes the segmentation of fetal lung a difficult task. In this paper, a novel method using the texture-based boundary enhancement and activeExpand
Consistent association between image features of fetal lungs from different ultrasound equipments and fetal lung maturity from amniocentesis
TLDR
This work explored the association between image features only from a fetal lung computed by a previously reported probabilistic model and fetal lung maturity and validated image features obtained from different US equipments. Expand
Prediction of neonatal respiratory morbidity by quantitative ultrasound lung texture analysis: a multicenter study
TLDR
The quantusFLM predicted neonatal respiratory morbidity with an accuracy similar to that previously reported for other tests with the advantage of being a noninvasive technique. Expand

TLDR
A historic look at methods/tools for assessing fetal lug maturity is taken and a potential non-invasive tool/method especially the non-Invasive assessment that combines ultrasound scan and machine learning to accurately assess lung maturity is discussed. Expand
Evaluation of Fetal Lung Maturity by Quantitative Analysis (quantusFLM) in Women with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
Quantitative ultrasound study of fetal lung texture suggests that a significant percentage of pregnant women with GDM treated with insulin had fetal lung immaturity in the late preterm to early term. Expand

[Sonographic diagnosis of fetal lung maturity--a new method].
TLDR
The liver is found as an adequate reference-organ, since there is no change of the reflection pattern between the different weeks of gestation, while there are significant changes to be registered in the fetal lung, a cutting line being week 35. Expand
Ultrasonic fetal and placental tissue characterization and lung maturity
TLDR
The placental and fetal lung tissue of preeclamptic patients tended to have higher coefficients of variation throughout pregnancy, and these results were significantly higher when associated with low‐birth‐weight babies. Expand
[Ultrasound diagnosis of fetal lung maturity].
TLDR
It was shown by amniocentesis in 32 patients and the postpartal condition of 25 premature births that a value of 1.11 for this ratio between lung and liver represents the borderline between pulmonary immaturity and maturity. Expand
Sonographic identification of lung maturation in the fetal lamb.
TLDR
The trends established in these animal studies appear promising and with refinement may form the basis for sonographic assessment of fetal lung maturity in a clinical setting. Expand
The use of ultrasound in the prediction of fetal pulmonary maturity.
TLDR
It is concluded that the ultrasonically determined BPD of greater than or equal to 9.2 cm or a Grade III placenta is at least as sensitive as the lecithin/sphingomyelin ratio in predicting pulmonary maturity in the patient population. Expand
Fetal lung to liver reflectivity ratio and lung maturity
TLDR
It is concluded that the ratio of densitometrically determined tissue densities of fetal lung and liver correlate with the US, the OD 650, or phosphatidylglycerol levels and this test cannot be reliably used to predict US, OD 650 reading, or PG levels. Expand

TLDR
These studies confirm the importance of the fetal adrenal in lung maturation in fetal sheep but suggest in addition that heightened activity of the adrenal medulla as well as the cortex is necessary. Expand
