The Human Placenta Project

Barrier to clinical translation of novel ultrasound technologies

The field of ultrasound imaging has a robust technical research community that develops novel ultrasound technologies that could be applied to placental imaging. However, much of these technological developments never make it to clinical adoption because of a lack of collaboration involving the combination of industry, technical ultrasound researchers, and clinicians. Specifically, the latest clinical ultrasound systems... more »

MRI and US in the assessment of placental health and disease

MR and ultrasound are listed in separate categories. However, US will always be a screening tool, used prior to MRI. When we are assessing diseases with plancetal etiologies, what is the best manner to integrate the information provided by both US and MRI. Can ultrasound be used to screen to lmiit the number of MR examinations? How is this affected by gestational age, position of the placenta with respect to maternal... more »

The Human Placenta Project

Simultaneous maternal and fetal blood flow assessment in the placenta using umbilical vein Doppler

A big issue in assessment of placental abnormalities in vivo is that the placenta has two separate blood supplies, maternal and fetal. Presently, there are no easy ways to directly assess these contributing flows at the same time. If there were such a method, it could greatly enhance placental evaluation in a myriad of ways. For instance, it would be possible to show the effects of various therapies on both the maternal... more »
