The June issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a consensus opinion from the VITA group on terms, definitions and measurements to describe the sonographic features of lymph nodes, a debate on the relative merits of the SMFM and ISUOG guidelines for diagnosing and managing fetal growth restriction, a State-of-the-Art Review on controversies in the management of twin pregnancy, and a RCT on routine third-trimester ultrasound for the detection of small-for-gestational age in low-risk pregnancies.
The January 30th anniversary special issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology is completely free to access. The issue includes a number of insightful Opinions from leaders in the field, including Stuart Campbell’s recollections of how ISUOG and the Journal were born, Katia Bilardo’s reflections on how the Society has evolved, Kurt Hecher’s account of how intrauterine surgery has advanced over the last three decades and Roberto Romero’s commentary on the prediction and prevention of preterm birth. Also included are high-impact research papers from influential groups which highlight the breadth of topics in which ultrasound plays an instrumental or supporting role.
