Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The measurement of the middle cerebral artery peak systolic velocity, a noninvasive technique, has become the standard for the diagnosis of fetal anemia. The middle cerebral artery peak systolic velocity is used because of its ease of measurement and its high sensitivity in predicting anemia. This diagnostic tool should only be used with fetuses at risk for anemia and in medical centers with adequate training in the technique.
