Prenatal Diagnosis and Evaluation of Abnormal Placentation

Karin A. Fox, Wesley Lee

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Abnormalities in placental location or adherence can have important consequences on pregnancy outcome for both mother and fetus. Accurate antenatal detection is crucial for delivery timing and planning to help reduce perinatal risks for adverse events. We review the relevant literature and present a practical approach for the prenatal detection of abnormal placentation.
