To develop a model for calculating the patient‐specific risk of spontaneous early preterm delivery by combining maternal factors and the transvaginal sonographic measurement of cervical length at 22 + 0 to 24 + 6 weeks, and to compare the detection rate of this method to that achieved from screening by cervical length or maternal characteristics alone. 

Cervical length and obstetric history predict spontaneous preterm birth: development and validation of a model to provide individualized risk assessment

To evaluate the ability of combinations of cervical length and maternal history to assess the risk of spontaneous preterm birth, and to provide a simple procedure for the optimal estimation of risk.

Our objectives were to compare the single‐line and two‐line methods of cervical length measurement in the first trimester of pregnancy and to evaluate the potential value of the first trimester

A predictive model of short cervix at 20–24 weeks using first‐trimester cervical length measurement and maternal history

To develop a model for the prediction of short cervix ( ≤ 15 mm) at 20–24 weeks by combining maternal history and transvaginal ultrasonographic measurement of cervical length at 11–14 weeks. To

The capacity of mid‐pregnancy cervical length to predict preterm birth in low‐risk women: a national cohort study

This work investigated the predictive capacity of mid‐trimester cervical length measurement for spontaneous and iatrogenic preterm birth and found it to be highly predictive of spontaneous birth.

Transvaginal cervical length measurement for prediction of preterm birth in women with threatened preterm labor: a meta‐analysis

The objective is to integrate data on the performance of cervical length measurement for the prediction of preterm birth in symptomatic women and to develop a strategy to integrate this data into clinical practice.
