December 2022 UOG Highlights

The December issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a prospective study investigating the utility of a machine-learning-based model for predicting pre-eclampsia, two studies on anal sphincter trauma and a study comparing fetal and neonatal sonographic parameters of brain ventricular size. Also in the issue are the first systematic review and meta-analysis to report on the incidence of congenital heart disease in fetuses with premature atrial contractions and an accompanying Editorial by Julene Carvalho proposing a systematic management protocol for cases with rhythm irregularities.

November 2022 UOG Highlights

The November issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review and meta-analysis collating evidence on the performance of magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound in detecting cervical and deep myometrial invasion in endometrial cancer, a multicenter study reporting on the incidence, clinical features and perinatal outcome of anomalous fetuses with late-onset growth restriction, and two studies on open spina bifida, focusing on prenatal treatment and the relationship between white matter development and motor deficits in the affected cases.

October 2022 UOG Highlights

The October issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review and meta-analysis providing the most up-to-date evidence on the performance of the sliding sign for detecting pouch of Douglas obliteration and bowel involvement in patients with endometriosis, the first study to investigate the diagnostic yield of whole-genome sequencing for non-immune hydrops fetalis, a study investigating the optimal method for selective fetal reduction in complicated monochorionic pregnancies, and a study evaluating the diagnostic test accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging and pelvic floor ultrasound for diagnosis of levator ani muscle avulsion. Additionally, the October issue features the latest research on the impact of pre-eclampsia on the maternal brain, including its detrimental effects on functional organization of the brain and integrity of the blood–brain barrier, detectable years after the complicated pregnancy.

September 2022 UOG Highlights

The September issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review and meta-analysis presenting unexpected findings regarding the relationship between severe smallness and perinatal outcome, a State-of-the-Art Review that collates the most up-to-date evidence on diagnostic tools for endometriosis, and a multicenter, prospective study demonstrating the value of third-trimester ultrasound for diagnosing clinically significant placenta accreta spectrum disorders. Additionally, the new issue features two novel studies on North American populations and an accompanying Editorial shedding light on the sociodemographic barriers to prenatal detection of congenital heart disease and their impact on women’s reproductive choices and perinatal outcome.

August 2022 UOG Highlights

The August issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a multicenter study developing and validating radiomics models to predict high-risk endometrial cancer, a prospective study providing insight into ultrasound features observed in asymptomatic women with endometrial pathology, and a systematic review and meta-analysis investigating the true incidence and outcomes of brain abnormality in surviving children following laser surgery for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. The August issue also features two novel studies providing complementary evidence supporting the role of uteroplacental dysfunction in preterm birth and discussing the potential of placental biomarkers in the prediction of preterm delivery in the first trimester. This month also sees the release of an Early View version of ISUOG Practice Guidelines on the role of ultrasound in the prediction of spontaneous preterm birth.
