Our research program aims at the early prediction of the Great Obstetrical Syndromes, including preeclampsia, preterm birth, fetal growth retardation and fetal death.

Our preliminary data suggest that a combination of biomarkers, including ultrasound, serum markers and maternal factors (BMI, age, blood pressure) could predict most of those complications as early as the third month of pregnancy.

3D ultrasound could also be beneficial for the prediction of those syndromes, but also in providing universal services for all pregnant women, including those living far from large cities.
