4 NICE New Routine Doppler ultrasound should not be used in low-risk pregnancies Suspected fetal malpresentation should be confirmed by an ultrasound assessment. The evidence does not support the routine use of ultrasound scanning after 24 weeks …therefore it should not be offered. NICE Antenatal care routine care for the healthy pregnant woman. Clinical Guideline. March 2008 COCHRANE Based on existing evidence, routine late pregnancy ultrasound in low-risk or unselected populations does not confer benefit on mother or baby. It may be associated with a small increase in caesarean section rates Bricker L, Neilson JP, Dowswell T. Routine ultrasound in late pregnancy (after 24 weeks’ gestation).

5 American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine. AIUM practice guideline for the performance of obstetric ultrasound examinations. J Ultrasound Med 2010; 29:157–166. AIUM Practice Guideline for the Performance of Obstetric Ultrasound Examinations Standard Second- or Third-Trimester Examination …includes an evaluation of fetal presentation, amniotic fluid volume, cardiac activity, placental position, fetal biometry, and fetal number, plus an anatomic survey. The maternal cervix and adnexa should be examined as clinically appropriate when technically feasible. Limited Examination A limited examination is performed when a specific question requires investigation. … confirm fetal heart activity in a bleeding patient or to verify fetal presentation in a laboring patient. Specialized Examinations A detailed anatomic examination is performed when an anomaly is suspected on the basis of history, biochemical abnormalities, or the results of either the limited or standard scan. Other specialized examinations might include fetal Doppler sonography, biophysical profile, a fetal echocardiogram, or additional biometric measurements. This guideline was developed by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) in collaboration with the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG),

7 Existing data do not provide conclusive evidence that the use of routine umbilical artery Doppler ultrasound, or combination of umbilical and uterine artery Doppler ultrasound in low-risk or unselected populations benefits either mother or baby. At present, Doppler ultrasound examination should be reserved for use in high-risk pregnancies Doppler (AU, AUt, ACM) - Alfirevic Z, Stampalija T, Gyte GML.

8 Screening and triage of IUGR Imdad A, Yakoob MI, Siddiqui S, Bhutta ZA. Screening and triage of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) in general population and high risk pregnancies: a systematic review with a focus on reduction of IUGR related stillbirths. BMC Public Health 2011, 11(Suppl 3):S1 Expert opinion suggests that detection and management of IUGR with the help of maternal BMI, symphysial-fundal height measurement and targeted ultrasound could be effective in reducing IUGR related stillbirths by 20%.

10 Doppler assessment significantly decreases the likelihood of labor induction, cesarean delivery, and perinatal deaths. Antepartum surveillance with Doppler of the umbilical artery should be started when the fetus is viable and IUGR is suspected. Doppler studies of vessels other than the umbilical artery, as part of assessment of fetal well-being in pregnancies complicated by IUGR, should be reserved for research protocols.

Fetal head-perineum distance and angle of progression measured with 2D or 3D ultrasound can predict labor outcome, with similar predictive values for the two techniques. Molina FS, Nicolaides KH.

Angle of progression measurements of fetal head at term: a systematic comparison between open magnetic resonance imaging and transperineal ultrasound. Am J Obstet Gynecol 2012;206:161.e1-5. The angle of progression measurements obtained by transperineal ultrasound and open MRI showed very good agreement.

12 ACOG Practice Bulletin No. 101: Ultrasonography in Pregnancy. Obstet Gynecol 2009; 113:451. Three-Dimensional Ultrasonography Despite these technical advantages, proof of a clinical advantage of three-dimensional ultrasonography in prenatal diagnosis in general is still lacking Until clinical evidence shows a clear advantage to conventional two-dimensional ultrasonography, three-dimensional ultrasonography is not considered a required modality at this time.

J Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism (2009) 29, 1609–1618 Angiografia 3d-Power Doppler All the fetal cerebral 3D vascular indices are increased in fetuses with FGR. In these fetuses, there were more cases suggesting hemodynamic redistribution than expected by conventional Doppler studies.

In 12 of these, 3D/4D ultrasound added to the accuracy of our diagnosis… There were 12 missed diagnoses (12/193; 6.2%) at the time of scanning; these lesions were also not evident during review.

18 Screening to prevent spontaneous preterm birth: systematic reviews of accuracy and effectiveness literature with economic modelling. Health Technology Assessment NIHR HTA programme September Honest H, Forbes CA, Durée KH, et al Screening to prevent spontaneous preterm birth: systematic reviews of accuracy and effectiveness literature with economic modelling. Health Technology Assessment NIHR HTA programme September Conclusions: …. Universal provision of high-quality ultrasound machines in labour wards is more strongly indicated for predicting spontaneous preterm birth among symptomatic women than direct management, although staffing issues and the feasibility and acceptability to mothers and health providers of such strategies need to be explored. …. Further research should include investigations of lowcost and effective tests and treatments …

Editorial Vaginal progesterone for asymptomatic cervical shortening and the case for universal screening of cervical length Am J Obstet Gynecol February 2012 The issue of universal CL screening of singleton gestations without prior PTB for the prevention of PTB remains an object of debate.
