The purpose of this study is to measure prenatally with ultrasound the intratracheal flow volume displaced during breathing cycle in premature fetuses and to check whether a relationship exists between the inspired fluid and fetal lung maturation.

A true estimation of gestational age (GA) plays animportant role in quality of maternity care such asassessment of fetal growth and to schedule the labordate. Any inaccurate estimation may...
5D and 2D ultrasound will be done to normal pregnant women between 37 to 42 weeks gestation and fetal weight will be estimated using the hadlock formula using biometry measured by both ult...
Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome affects babies who are born preterm and requires them to be placed on a ventilator in the Intensive Care Unit. Over 15 million babies were born prema...
Fetal research and clinical practice has been hampered by a lack of suitable investigational techniques. Currently, ultrasound is the only widely used method of studying fetal anatomy and ...
Diabetes is the most common medical complication of pregnancy in the united states four to five percent of pregnancies are complicated by diabetes. Pregestational diabetes (diabetes diagn...
The aim of the present study was to evaluate fetal lung maturity using the noninvasive method of quantitative ultrasound analysis of fetal lung texture (quantusFLM) in women with gestational diabetes ...
Whether or not the period of fetal lung maturity differs between twin and singleton pregnancies has not been clarified. We examined whether or not fetal lung maturity and fetal lung absorption are ach...
To assess the performance of first-trimester ultrasound (US) in identifying major fetal structural abnormalities in an unselected population.
Lung ultrasound is commonly used to evaluate lung morphology in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. Aim of this study was to determine lung ultrasound reliability in assessing lung aera...
The potential of the FETUS to survive outside the UTERUS after birth, natural or induced. Fetal viability depends largely on the FETAL ORGAN MATURITY, and environmental conditions.
Functional competence of specific organs or body systems of the FETUS in utero.
The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.
A nonreassuring fetal status (NRFS) indicating that the FETUS is compromised (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 1988). It can be identified by sub-optimal values in FETAL HEART RATE; oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD; and other parameters.
A clear, yellowish liquid that envelopes the FETUS inside the sac of AMNION. In the first trimester, it is likely a transudate of maternal or fetal plasma. In the second trimester, amniotic fluid derives primarily from fetal lung and kidney. Cells or substances in this fluid can be removed for prenatal diagnostic tests (AMNIOCENTESIS).
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
