Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Preterm birth is the leading cause of worldwide neonatal mortality. It follows a pathologically accelerated form of the normal processes that govern cervical softening and dilation. Softening and dilation occur due to changes in cervical collagen crosslinking, which can be measured non-invasively by changes in tissue fluorescence and impedance. We present a novel device designed specifically to take fluorescence and impedance measurements throughout pregnancy, with the end goal of fusing and trending these measurements to form an early diagnosis of preterm labor.
