The International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) is a scientific organization that encourages safe clinical practice and high-quality teaching and research related to diagnostic imaging in women’s healthcare. The ISUOG Clinical Standards Committee (CSC) has a remit to develop Practice Guidelines and Consensus Statements that provide healthcare practitioners with a consensus-based approach for diagnostic imaging. They are intended to reflect what is considered by… Expand

Audit of the appropriateness of the indication for obstetric sonography in a tertiary facility in Ghana
TLDR
Practitioners should be mindful of adequately completing request forms for obstetric investigations since a large number of practitioners do not state the history/indications for the scans. Expand
No. 352-Technical Update: The Role of Early Comprehensive Fetal Anatomy Ultrasound Examination.
TLDR
This guideline presents an evidence-based technical update and recommendations for the performance of early comprehensive fetal anatomic scanning (ECFAS) at 11 to 16 weeks' gestation and it is anticipated that there will be an increase in earlier detection of major fetal anomalies in the target population with the benefits of earlier interventions for those individuals.

  • Y. Ville
  • Medicine
  • Ultrasound in obstetrics & gynecology : the official journal of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology

TLDR
Quality assessment in prenatal ultrasound should aim to go beyond record-keeping of ultrasound examination reports and images and clinical outcomes and address both technology and operator-related issues, because these two components of the procedure cannot be dissociated. Expand
First trimester ultrasonography in screening and detection of fetal anomalies
  • J. Sonek
  • Medicine
  • American journal of medical genetics. Part C, Seminars in medical genetics
  • 2007
TLDR
The role of first trimester (11–13 + 6 weeks' gestation) ultrasound in screening and diagnosis of fetal anomalies and a number of new ultrasound markers for fetal aneuploidy have been investigated over the past several years, some of which appear to improve the screening efficacy of early ultrasonography. Expand
Role of First‐Trimester Sonography in the Diagnosis of Aneuploidy and Structural Fetal Anomalies
TLDR
The results are comparable to previously published studies from other centers and further exemplify the invaluable role of the first‐trimester scan in the early detection of aneuploidy and structural anomalies in an unselected low‐risk population. Expand
Ultrasound detection of fetal anomalies in conjunction with first-trimester nuchal translucency screening: a feasibility study.
TLDR
A complete anatomy survey was successful in 33% of first-trimester fetuses in a time-limited sonographer based screening program, since some anomalies are not evident in the first trimester, the 18- to 20-week scan remains the gold standard. Expand
Learning Curve in Ultrasonographic Screening for Selected Fetal Structural Anomalies in Early Pregnancy
TLDR
In a low-risk population, adequate sensitivity in screening for major malformations by early ultrasonography can be achieved after a learning curve of 3–4 years. Expand
First and early second trimester fetal heart screening
TLDR
Improved technology has lowered the gestational age at which fetal cardiac anatomy scanning can be reliably performed by properly trained and experienced examiners, and can be offered as a screening examination to at-risk and low-risk patients. Expand
Ultrasound for fetal assessment in early pregnancy.
  • J. Neilson
  • Medicine
  • The Cochrane database of systematic reviews
  • 2000
TLDR
Routine ultrasound in early pregnancy appears to enable better gestational age assessment, earlier detection of multiple pregnancies and earlier Detection of clinically unsuspected fetal malformation at a time when termination of pregnancy is possible, however the benefits for other substantive outcomes are less clear. Expand
Qualified and trained sonographers in the US can perform early fetal anatomy scans between 11 and 14 weeks.
TLDR
Anatomic surveys between 11 and 14 weeks can be performed by sonographers with good detection rates of most structures, and using the vaginal probe compared with the abdominal probe improved the detection rate at 13 to 14 weeks as well as 11 to 12 weeks. Expand
Fetal transabdominal anatomy scanning using standard views at 11 to 14 weeks' gestation.
TLDR
Transabdominal fetal anatomy scanning with standard fetal anatomy views at 11 to 14 weeks of gestation is possible with good reproducibility and demonstrability when harmonic and compound imaging are used. Expand
