Prenatal Diagnosis Database

Principal Investigator: Professor Dena Towner, M.D.

 

This is a data study where UC Davis prenatal diagnosis patients over the past 15 years have been entered into a database with over 15,000 entries. Examples of current and suggested studies are: 1) additional risk for Trisomy 21 associated with multiple echogenic foci in the fetal heart versus just one focus, 2) evaluating the risk of IUGR with an isolated single umbilical artery, and 3) other maternal trends, such as percent of women opting for AFP screening rather than amniocentesis.
