Placental morphologic and functional imaging in high-risk pregnancies.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The placenta is vital for fetal growth and development. Improvement in ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging have improved our understanding of placental morphology that can be important as in the case of placental accrete/percreta. Functional imaging is presently mainly performed by the use of Doppler ultrasound and can give information on placental perfusion, which can be vital for clinical diagnosis. This review summarizes the present knowledge on placental imaging and it's clinical value in high-risk pregnancies.
