Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advanced ultrasonography can be applied from the beginning of intrauterine fetal life. Prenatal diagnosis and maternal–fetal medicine are rapidly evolving. New imaging modalities and laboratory methodologies have allowed us to diagnose maternal–fetal pathologies early and therefore provide rapid treatment.

In this Special Issue, we have assembled a collection of articles from experts in maternal–fetal medicine to highlight how advances in prenatal ultrasound have caused a revolution in screening and diagnosis. Our objective is to provide an overview of the latest results achieved in this field. The spectrum of topics ranges from fetal diagnosis to genetic testing modalities and maternal–fetal medicine.
