Abstract

Some important issues continue to plague the perinatologist caring for the pregnant diabetic. These issues deal principally with fetal surveillance to prevent macrosomia, idiopathic prematurity and multiple congenital anomalies. In this report particular emphasis is placed upon the role of transvaginal and transabdominal ultrasonography in monitoring fetal growth and in early detection of congenital anomalies. New modalities, such as Doppler flow measurements and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, are described in addition to our experience at the Beilinson Medical Center in monitoring diabetic pregnancies by these modalities.
