The diagnostic value of a detailed first trimester anomaly scan in fetuses with increased nuchal translucency thickness.

Objectives To assess the diagnostic value of an early anomaly scan in fetuses with increased nuchal translucency (NT) in the prediction of aneuploidy. Methods In this study we analyzed the data of pre...

Prenatal diagnosis of Norrie disease based on ultrasound scan findings.

Norrie disease (ND; OMIM: 310600) is a rare, X-linked, recessive genetic disease caused by mutations in the NDP gene and characterized by congenital blindness due to bilateral degenerative changes in ...

Early Detection of Structural Anomalies in a Primary Care Setting in the Netherlands.

This study assessed the percentage and type of congenital anomalies diagnosed at first-trimester ultrasound (US) scan in a primary care setting without following a standardized protocol for fetal anat...

Early first trimester transvaginal ultrasound is indicated in pregnancies after a previous cesarean delivery: should it be mandated?

In this opinion article, we provide compelling arguments of why early screening for pregnancies following previous cesarean delivery would be beneficial. First, we provide an overview of the perils of...

Rapid Assessment of the Neonate With Sonography (RANS) Scan.

The use of point-of-care sonography in clinical settings such as emergency medicine and intensive care units has increased, but adoption in neonatology has been slow. Unlike the focused assessment wit...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.

The production of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES). In humans, erythrocytes are produced by the YOLK SAC in the first trimester; by the liver in the second trimester; by the BONE MARROW in the third trimester and after birth. In normal individuals, the erythrocyte count in the peripheral blood remains relatively constant implying a balance between the rate of erythrocyte production and rate of destruction.

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with velocity detection combined with range discrimination. Short bursts of ultrasound are transmitted at regular intervals and the echoes are demodulated as they return.
