OBJECTIVES A previous study suggested that the lower uterine artery pulsatility index (PI) is a better predictor of pre-eclampsia than is either the mean or higher indices. The aim of this study was to assess the relative value of these three indices for the prediction of pre-eclampsia in the first trimester of pregnancy.
