This is a Practice Guideline on how to perform Doppler ultrasonography of the fetoplacental circulation. The aim is to describe pulsed Doppler ultrasound and its different modalities: spectral Doppler, color flow mapping and power Doppler, which are commonly used to study the maternal–fetal circulation.
