Newly updated ISUOG Practice Guidelines: performance of the routine mid-trimester fetal ultrasound scan
Read the newly updated ISUOG Practice Guidelines on how to perform the routine mid-trimester fetal ultrasound scan.
The mid-trimester ultrasound scan is performed mainly for anatomical evaluation of the fetus. In experts’ hands, most clinically important structural anomalies can be detected.
To mark Pre-eclampsia Awareness Month, the May issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a series of research papers investigating the impact of pre-eclampsia on maternal health and potential biomarkers of the disorder. The issue also includes a systematic review and a retrospective study on the outcome of patients with aortic stenosis following fetal aortic valvuloplasty, a prospective study evaluating genetic causes of skeletal system abnormalities and a study validating IOTA models and O-RADS tool for preoperative assessment of adnexal lesions in a North American population.
To mark International Cesarean Awareness Month, the April issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a series of research papers and expert opinions on the topics of abnormally adherent placenta and Cesarean scar pregnancy. The issue also includes a study investigating predictors of fetal cerebral ischemic injury in monochorionic twin pregnancy complicated by spontaneous single intrauterine demise, a large prospective study reporting ophthalmic artery Doppler findings in non-hypertensive pregnancies with small-for-gestational-age or growth-restricted fetus, a multicenter study on the use of clinical phenotypes of small-for-gestational age for risk stratification and a short report demonstrating the positive impact of vaccination on maternal outcome during the Omicron wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With World Congress abstract submissions closing on 28 March we have put together 5 key points to follow when preparing and submitting your abstract.
The March issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a study validating a novel artificial intelligence tool for detecting CNS abnormalities and a study evaluating fetal growth patterns in monochorionic twin pregnancies complicated by Type-III selective fetal growth restriction. To coincide with Endometriosis Awareness Month, this issue also features a large prospective multicenter study evaluating the accuracy of ultrasound for detection of ovarian and deep endometriosis using #Enzian classification. Also, look out for the recently accepted State-of-the-Art Review on the strengths and limitations of diagnostic tools for endometriosis by an international group of experts in the field of endometriosis research.

ISUOG is currently looking for an Editor-in-Chief for ULTRASOUND in Obstetrics & Gynecology, the official Journal of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology.
Following WHO’s recommendations on prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infection in health workers wearing respirators, ISUOG's updated Safety Statement recommends all practitioners performing ultrasound in OBGYN wear respirators regardless of the patient's COVID status. We urge all members of the ISUOG community to stay safe.
The February issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review evaluating the postnatal outcome of fetuses with a rare diagnosis of apparently isolated agenesis of the septum pellucidum, an intriguing study assessing the risk of miscarriage in twin pregnancy following chorionic villus sampling using a statistical approach that simulates a RCT and a new study on COVID-19, investigating predictors of adverse outcome in affected pregnancies. The issue also includes the first prospective study to compare ultrasound, CT and a novel technique, whole-body diffusion-weighted MRI, for preoperative assessment of advanced ovarian cancer and an updated meta-analysis on the efficacy of vaginal progesterone for the prevention of adverse outcome in women with twin pregnancy and a short cervix.
The January issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology is completely free to read! The issue includes a systematic review evaluating the diagnostic accuracy of first-trimester ultrasound examination in the detection of fetal cardiac abnormalities, a study reporting on clinical experience with non-invasive prenatal screening for single-gene disorders, a study developing and validating a model for prediction of placental dysfunction-related stillbirth from maternal factors, fetal weight and uterine artery Doppler at mid-gestation, an analysis of 13,062 SARS-CoV-2-positive pregnancies evaluating comorbidities and social vulnerability as risk factors of maternal death in Mexico, and a prospective study assessing first-trimester screening for placenta accreta spectrum in women with prior Cesarean delivery using transvaginal ultrasound assessment of the lower uterine segment scar.
To celebrate the New Year, the January 2022 issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology has been made completely free to read.
The December issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a State-of-the-Art Review discussing the rationale for fetoscopic repair of complex gastroschisis, a study demonstrating evidence of SARS-CoV-2 vertical transmission according to the WHO criteria, a study showing similar characteristics of ectopic pregnancies prior to vs during the COVID-19 pandemic and a study finding that transvaginal sonography determines accurately the extent of infiltration of rectosigmoid deep endometriosis. Also in the issue, find out who were the all-important contributors to UOG’s peer-review process in 2021.

The November issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review identifying perinatal risk factors for neurodevelopmental impairment after laser surgery for twin–twin transfusion syndrome, a study showing a reduction in the rate of preterm birth during COVID-19 pandemic restriction measures in Melbourne, Australia, a cost-effectiveness analysis demonstrating a reduction in disease prevalence and health-service costs associated with a model of first-trimester prediction and prevention of preterm pre-eclampsia, and a secondary analysis of a RCT finding no difference in psychological response to early miscarriage and treatment satisfaction after expectant management vs misoprostol treatment.
We are pleased to invite all ISUOG current members to the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of the Society held as a virtual event on Friday 19 November 2021 at 12:00 PM / GMT.
