Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The fields of fetal diagnosis, surveillance and therapy have seen rapid growth in the last decade. Significant progress in imaging modalities, laboratory methodologies, fetal surveillance techniques and treatment options have led to new knowledge with important impacts on parental counseling and perinatal management.

In this Special Issue, we aim to provide an overview of the latest achievements in the field. The spectrum of topics ranges from advances in ultrasound-based findings and imaging techniques as well as genetic testing modalities and fetal surveillance.
