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.

The July issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating perinatal outcome of triplet pregnancies following fetoscopic laser surgery for twin–twin transfusion syndrome, a new study exploring the role of ophthalmic artery Doppler in the prediction of pregnancy complications, a prospective study comparing fetal growth in IVF/ICSI pregnancies following frozen–thawed vs fresh blastocyst transfer and a Delphi study providing revised definitions of the MUSA features of adenomyosis.

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.
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 February issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes State-of-the-Art Reviews on pharmacologic considerations for COVID-19 in pregnancy and the technique and diagnostic potential of first-trimester fetal neurosonography, an individual participant data meta-analysis of Foley catheter vs oral misoprostol for induction of labor, a propensity score matched analysis of the risk of COVID-19-related outcomes in pregnant vs non-pregnant women, a study on the prediction of pre-eclampsia in twin pregnancy by maternal factors and biomarkers at 11–13 weeks’ gestation using data from the EVENTS trial, and a study on vessel morphology depicted by 3D power Doppler ultrasound as a second-stage test in adnexal tumors that are difficult to classify.
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.

The October issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a State-of-the-Art Review on artificial intelligence in ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology, a study on the survival outcome in severe left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia with and without FETO in a country with suboptimal neonatal management, a study on translabial ultrasound for grading of obstetric anal sphincter injury, and a study on the utility of lung ultrasound assessment for probable SARS-CoV-2 infection during pregnancy and universal screening of asymptomatic individuals.
