Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ultrasound has revolutionized the field of obstetrics and gynecology, offering a non-invasive, real-time visualization tool crucial for the diagnosis and management of various conditions. Its evolution from simple 2D scans to advanced 3D and 4D imaging has significantly enhanced our understanding and management of obstetric and gynecologic diseases. Despite these advancements, this field faces ongoing challenges in the standardization of protocols, interpretation of complex images, and integration of emerging technologies like elastography and contrast-enhanced ultrasound. The rapid evolution of ultrasound technology calls for continuous research and updates in clinical practices.

Aims and core problems to be solved: This Special Issue aims to address the pressing need for updated knowledge and practice guidelines in the ultrasound diagnosis of obstetric and gynecologic diseases. It seeks to tackle core problems, including improving diagnostic accuracy, differentiating between benign and malignant conditions, enhancing the quality of prenatal screening, and integrating novel ultrasound technologies into everyday clinical practice. Additionally, this Special Issue will focus on addressing the educational gaps in ultrasound training for clinicians and exploring the role of ultrasound in personalized medicine in obstetrics and gynecology.

The scope of this Special Issue and solicitation of papers: We invite researchers and practitioners to contribute to this Special Issue on “Ultrasound Diagnosis of Obstetrics and Gynecologic Diseases.” We are seeking original research papers, comprehensive reviews, case studies, and technical advancements in this field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in 3D and 4D ultrasound imaging in obstetrics and gynecology.
  • Clinical applications of elastography and contrast-enhanced ultrasound in gynecologic oncology.
  • Standardization and interpretation challenges in obstetric ultrasound.
  • Innovations in prenatal screening and fetal imaging.
  • The role of ultrasound in fertility assessment and treatments.
  • Educational strategies and tools for training clinicians in ultrasound diagnostics.
  • Ethical and practical considerations in the use of ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology.

We look forward to submissions that offer insightful perspectives, novel approaches, and significant research findings that will contribute to the advancement of ultrasound diagnostics in the ever-evolving landscape of obstetrics and gynecology.
