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.

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, ...


A parallel manipulator as a haptic interface solution for amniocentesis simulation

C. Duriez; D. Lamy; C. Chaillou Proceedings 10th IEEE International Workshop on Robot and Human Interactive Communication. ROMAN 2001 (Cat. No.01TH8591), 2001

The education of surgical students in the practical gesture needs to find new pedagogical tools. Some operations such as amniocentesis, require specific training. The medical simulation allows learning step by step, with an increasing difficulty in the exercises. To improve the realism of the simulation, a haptic feedback is sometimes important. We introduce a novel haptic display specially designed for ...


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 ...
