This SIG has recently changed its name to include imaging modalities beyond fetal ultrasound, which is still the mainstay of prenatal imaging diagnosis. Activities focus predominantly on pre-congress courses, but the SIG also wishes to produce tools for clinical aid (systematic reviews, management algorithms) and to offer a forum for ongoing engagement between SIG members, and with other professionals involved in Prenatal Diagnosis, including those working in the laboratory and clinical settings.

SIG Topics of Discussion/Interest

  • Prenatal Dysmorphology of Genetic Syndromes
  • Detection of Congenital Anomalies
  • Ultrasound Markers of Aneuploidy
  • The Genetic Sonogram
  • Prenatal and postmortem MRI
  • Color and pulsed Doppler
  • New Ultrasound Technologies
  • First trimester screening
  • ltrasound-guided invasive diagnostic procedures
