Amniocentesis

View this topic in
Amniocentesis (also referred to as amniotic fluid test or AFT), is a medical procedure used in prenatal diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities and fetal infections, in which a small amount of amniotic fluid, which contains fetal tissues, is extracted from the amnion or amniotic sac surrounding a developing fetus, and the fetal DNA is examined for genetic abnormalities.

2017 IEEE 14th International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2017)

The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) is the premier forum for the presentation of technological advances in theoretical and applied biomedical imaging. ISBI 2017 will be the 14th meeting in this series. The previous meetings have played a leading role in facilitating interaction between researchers in medical and biological imaging. The 2017 meeting will continue this tradition of fostering crossfertilization among different imaging communities and contributing to an integrative approach to biomedical imaging across all scales of observation.

Intelligent Noninvasive Diagnosis of Aneuploidy: Raw Values and Highly Imbalanced Dataset

Andreas C. Neocleous; Kypros H. Nicolaides; Christos N. Schizas IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, 2017

The objective of this paper is to introduce a noninvasive diagnosis procedure for aneuploidy and to minimize the social and financial cost of prenatal diagnosis tests that are performed for fetal aneuploidies in an early stage of pregnancy. We propose a method by using artificial neural networks trained with data from singleton pregnancy cases, while undergoing first trimester screening. Three ...


Designing online mobile medical records in obstetrics-gynecology subsystem

Eko Handoyo; R Rizal Isnanto; Anung Prastyo Pribadi International Conference on Instrumentation, Communication, Information Technology, and Biomedical Engineering 2009, 2009

The needs for better and faster medical service has force us to create a system that able to serve it. Nowadays, there are many medical records applications have been developed to serve the needs, but most of them still handle the needs in common management of a hospital or medical institution, whereas the subsystems are also needed to be handled ...


Microsystems technology for the separation of fetal cells from maternal blood

Deirdre M. Kavanagh; David Flynn; Farid Amalou; Brian G. Moffat; Resham Dhariwal; Marc P. Y. Desmulliez 2008 2nd Electronics System-Integration Technology Conference, 2008

At present the successful diagnosis of fetal abnormalities relies on the analysis of fetal genetic material obtained through invasive procedures such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS). These procedures are expensive, time consuming and have the potential to cause harm to both the fetus and mother. A review of current diagnostic techniques in the field of prenatal care is ...


Consistent association between image features of fetal lungs from different ultrasound equipments and fetal lung maturity from amniocentesis

E. Bonet-Carne; T. Cobo; J. Luque; M. Martínez-Terrón; A. Perez-Moreno; M. Palacio; E. Gratacos; I. Amat-Roldan 2012 9th IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI), 2012

Respiratory disorders in premature are outlined as one of the major causes of newborn morbidity. Therefore, estimation in utero of the risk that a particular newborn will present respiratory distress syndrome is critical in perinatal medicine. Fetal lung maturity assessment by non-invasive methods is an unsolved problem since 80's. There has been a significant effort reporting that ultrasound images carry ...


Haptic aided design: a case study

Jian Zhang; S. Payandeh; J. Dill 11th Symposium on Haptic Interfaces for Virtual Environment and Teleoperator Systems, 2003. HAPTICS 2003. Proceedings., 2003

This paper presents a preliminary investigation of the effectiveness of haptic feedback for design processes involving mechanisms used by a human operator in interacting with an environment. Our example is a case study of the design of an amniocentesis device, which represents a relatively simple and yet meaningful application. We simulated the mechanism, as well as its intended working environment, ...
