• Prenatal nutrition has a strong influence on birth weight and further development of the infant.There was a study at the National Institution of Health were they found out that babies born from an obese mother, have a higher probability to fail tests of fine motor skills which is the movement of small muscles such as the hands and fingers.

  • Sonographers are medical professionals who perform scans which are then typically interpreted by themselves or the radiologists, physicians who specialize in the application and interpretation of a wide variety of medical imaging modalities, or by cardiologists in the case of cardiac ultrasonography (echocardiography).

  • Prenatal development starts with fertilization , the first stage in embryogenesis which continues in fetal development until birth . (wikipedia.org)
  • Prenatal development starts with fertilization , in the germinal stage of embryonic development, and continues in fetal development until birth . (wikipedia.org)
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of prenatal ultrasonography (US) on the birth of babies with diseases listed on the Korean pediatric surgery index diseases (IDs). (koreamed.org)
  • Potential applications of prenatal sex discernment include: A complement to specific gene testing for monogenic disorders, which can be very useful for genetic diseases with sex linkage, such as, for example, X-linked diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • In JSRD-affected fetuses, prenatal MR imaging detected narrow pontomesencephalic junction (isthmus) with deepening of the interpeduncular fossa and thick horizontally placed superior cerebellar peduncles (MTS), deformed anteriorly convex floor of the fourth ventricle, and midline cerebellar cleft in place of the hypoplastic vermis.

  • To analyze the prenatal outcomes in a cohort of fetuses with mild bilateral pyelectasis and determine whether performing serial ultrasounds is a good follow-up strategy. (scielo.br)
  • We excluded prenatal tests referred because of results of ultrasound scanning: among fetuses tested by amniocentesis revised relative risk was 5.68, while revised relative risk among fetuses tested by chorion villus sampling was 13.3. (bmj.com)
  • When additional prenatal microarray studies are included in which ascertainment was restricted to fetuses with abnormal ultrasound scans, 262/3730 (7.0%) were reported to have pCNCs. (biomedsearch.com)
  • PURPOSE: To determine the ratio of fetal lung volume (FLV) to fetal body weight (FBW) by using ultrasonography (US) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and to evaluate the usefulness of this ratio in predicting pulmonary hypoplasia (PH) in fetuses at high risk. (biomedsearch.com)
  • CONCLUSION: Preterm IUGR/ARED fetuses exhibit divergent cardiovascular responses to prenatal steroids. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The sensitivity of ultrasonography with regard to malformations in the brain and spine was 100 % (27/27) and with regard to malformations in the internal organ system (including malformations in the urogenital and gastrointestinal systems and in the abdominal wall and diaphragm) was 91 % (30/33). (biomedsearch.com)
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of prenatal ultrasound scans to predict fetal growth discordance in twin pregnancies and perinatal morbidity/mortality associated with these cases. (usp.br)
  • This series describes an unusual sonographic prenatal presentation of ADPKD, not yet well described in the radiologic literature, mimicking ARPKD. (springer.com)
