This review covers ultrasound evaluation of the normal and abnormal placenta with clinical correlation. Normal placental function is essential for a healthy pregnancy outcome as well as for maternal, fetal, childhood, and adult health. Abnormal placental function may result in a compromised pregnancy, creating pathology for the fetus and mother alike. Despite the fact that placental anatomy, function, and location has far-reaching effects for the parents and the developing offspring, ultrasound… Expand
Imaging and assessment of placental function
TLDR
The article highlights the need for further research into three‐dimensional ultrasound and alternative methods of placental evaluation if progress is to be made in optimizing placental function assessment. Expand
Correlation of Placental Thickness Estimated by - Ultrasonography with Gestational Age and Fetal Outcome
TLDR
To compare fetal gestational age estimated by placental thickness with other parameters of fetal growth as BPD, FL, AC and HC, and to evaluate the role of placental Thickness estimation in predicting LBW & IUGR, a “point of confinement” is that, the placental width of 18 cm placential thickness of 2 cm at 36 weeks predicts a low conception weight neonate.

AN ULTRASONOGRAPHIC STUDY OF PLACENTAL THICKNESS AND GESTATIONAL AGE IN SECOND & THIRD TRIMESTER
The placenta is a sprightliness of fetus in utero, as it function for normal growth & development of fetus. So if the growth of fetus is compromised it can be detected by the measurement of placenta.Expand
CORRELATION BETWEEN PLACENTAL THICKNESS IN THE SECOND AND THIRD TRIMESTER AND FETAL WEIGHT
TLDR
This study conducts a study in which the placental thickness is correlated with the weight of fetus in population of Uttar pradesh state of Indian population. Expand
Ultrasound Doppler evaluation of placental abnormalities in second and third trimester.
TLDR
Assessment of placental morphology, location, normal variants and associated pathologies such as tumors is essential during routine follow up of patients in antenatal period. Expand
Fetal Gestational Age Determination using Ultrasound Placental Thickness
TLDR
PT has a linear relationship with GA, fetal growth parameters, and EFW and it can be used along with other fetal growth parameter to increase the accuracy for predicting GA in normal pregnancies, especially when the subject is not sure of or does not know her LMP. Expand
Correlation of Placental Thickness in Relation to Gestational Age and Fetal Weight by using Ultrasonography
TLDR
This study studies the role of placental thickness in estimating gestational age, which is closely related to wellbeing of fetus and may be an important factor in predicting perinatal outcome. Expand
Evaluation of placental thickness as a sonological indicator for estimation of gestational age of foetus in normal singleton pregnancy.
TLDR
In instances when femoral length was difficult to measure due to excessive foetal movements, Placental thickness was found to be a reliable alternative biometric measurement in calculating gestational age. Expand
Correlation of ultrasound placental diameter & thickness with gestational age
TLDR
Placental thickness and Placental diameter can be used to predict gestational age and it is advised to use PT & PD in ultrasound obstetric assessment especially when Last menstrual period (LMP) is not clear. Expand
A correlative study to evaluate the gestational age by sonological measurement of placental thickness in normal second and third trimester pregnancy
TLDR
Placental thickness can be an additional parameter for estimation of the Gestational age as it almost corresponds with the gestational age in second and third trimesters. Expand

Second-trimester placental volume measurement by ultrasound: prediction of fetal outcome.
TLDR
A prospective study evaluated sonographic second-trimester placental volume measurements in the prediction of fetal outcome and found evidence that fetal growth retardation is preceded by abnormal placental development in the first half of pregnancy. Expand
Placental abruption and placental hemorrhage: correlation of sonographic findings with fetal outcome.
TLDR
Fetal mortality correlated best with the estimated percentage of placental detachment, but was also significantly associated with the location (retroplacental) and size (greater than 60 ml) of hemorrhage. Expand
Ultrasound evaluation of abnormal umbilical cord coiling in second trimester of gestation in association with adverse pregnancy outcome.
TLDR
Abnormal umbilical cord coiling that is detected at the fetal ultrasound anatomic survey in the second trimester is associated with a higher prevalence of small for gestational age neonates and non-reassuring fetal status in labor. Expand
The relationship of placental grade, fetal lung maturity, and neonatal outcome in normal and complicated pregnancies.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the presence of a Grade III placenta is affected by both gestational age and pregnancy complications, and when an elective cesarean section delivery is being planned near term gestation, a Grade II placentas is a reliable predictor of lung maturity. Expand
What is a low-lying placenta?
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that transvaginal ultrasonography measurement may indicate the optimal delivery route and make the traditional classification of placenta previa obsolete. Expand
Accuracy of prenatal sonography for detecting circumvallate placenta.
TLDR
Focused placental sonograms interpreted by experienced sonologists fail to detect the placental edge abnormality in most cases of circumvallation, and the accuracy of sonography of the placenta for revealing circumVallation appears to be limited. Expand
Antenatal Diagnosis of Single Umbilical Artery: Is Fetal Echocardiography Warranted?
TLDR
Fetal echocardiography does not appear to add further diagnostic information to the antenatal evaluation of the fetus with isolated single umbilical artery when normal four‐chamber and outflow tract views of the heart have already been obtained. Expand
The Clinical Significance of a Single Umbilical Artery as an Isolated Finding on Prenatal Ultrasound
TLDR
In the absence of additional sonographically detectable anomalies, an isolated single umbilical artery does not seem to affect clinical outcome and therefore should not alter routine obstetric management. Expand
The ultrasonic changes in the maturing placenta and their relation to fetal pulmonic maturity.
TLDR
A correlation between maturational changes of the placenta as seen by ultrasound and fetal pulmonic maturity as indicated by L/S ratio is suggested. Expand
The ultrasonographic prediction of chorionicity in twin gestation.
TLDR
It is suggested that counting the number of layers seen in fetal membranes by ultrasonography examination is an accurate way of determining chorionicity in twin gestation. Expand
