Articles on other topics in this issue include an Original Article on home blood-pressure monitoring in a hypertensive pregnant population.
The March issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology contains, among other articles, a Randomized Controlled Trial on fetal middle cerebral artery Doppler for timing of intrauterine transfusion in red-cell alloimmunization, a Systematic Review on prognostic accuracy of cerebroplacental ratio and middle cerebral artery Doppler for adverse perinatal outcome, and an Original Article reporting on an expert review of sonographer self-reported visualization of normal postmenopausal ovaries on transvaginal ultrasound.
The February issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology has a special focus on abnormally adherent and invasive placenta, with relevant articles including an Opinion piece on terminology used to describe the disorder, a Systematic Review on its prediction using first-trimester ultrasound signs, an original article on the cross-over sign for prediction of surgical outcome in diagnosed women, and a Systematic Review on expectant management of women diagnosed with Cesarean scar pregnancy.
The January issue is a special issue on Reproductive Medicine and is completely free to access. It contains a range of articles including, among others, systematic reviews and original research on the outcome of pregnancies conceived by assisted reproductive technology, articles on congenital uterine malformations and antral follicle counting, including a consensus opinion, and a randomized controlled trial on the treatment of early miscarriage. Also in this issue, is a consensus-based description of a curriculum and competency assessment for standardization of ultrasound training in residency programs.

The November issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology contains, among other articles, an Editorial on early screening and prevention of preterm pre-eclampsia with aspirin, a Systematic Review on the effect of single- vs double-layer uterine closure on the risk of Cesarean scar defect, an Original Article on the pathophysiology of fetuses with D-loop transposition of the great arteries with intact ventricular septum and a nested case–control study on the performance of third-trimester screening by estimated fetal weight centile vs a combined model for the prediction of late-onset fetal growth restriction and small-for-gestational-age neonates.
The October issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology contains, among many other articles, a Systematic Review of the diagnostic accuracy of first-trimester ultrasound in the detection of fetal structural anomalies, an Original Article on the performance of color and power Doppler combined with Fetal Intelligent Navigation Echocardiography (FINE) in assessing the fetal heart, a study evaluating the performance of a previously developed first-trimester screening algorithm for pre-eclampsia in the population of the ASPRE trial, and a pilot study on the potential of MRI/ultrasound fusion imaging to identify Cesarean section scar.
The September issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology contains a Systematic Review on placental histopathology associated with pre-eclampsia and an accompanying Opinion commentary on the article, an updated Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis on maternal serum cell-free DNA screening for aneuploidy and an Original Article on the QUiPP app, showing it to be a safe alternative to a treat-all strategy for threatened preterm labor.
The August issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology contains an Editorial on fetal anemia, a Systematic Review on customized vs population-based growth charts to identify neonates at risk of adverse outcome, the latest study in the series of articles on imaging in gynecological disease and the study protocol for the ‘Screening programme for pre-eclampsia’ (SPREE) study.
