The resistance index (RI) of uteroplacental blood flow velocity waveforms (VWF) was investigated by continuous Doppler ultrasound in 286 nonselected pregnant women with singleton pregnancies at 18-21 weeks (n = 129) and at 31-33 weeks (n = 157) of gestation to evaluate the validity of this method as a screening procedure for abnormal pregnancy outcome (intrauterine growth retardation, pregnancy-induced hypertension and fetal asphyxia). The sensitivity of predicting pregnancy outcome was 26.6% at 18-21 weeks and 17.6% at 31-33 weeks of gestation. It was concluded that this method is too insensitive as a screening tool for the prediction of intrauterine growth retardation and pregnancy-induced hypertension in a low-risk nonselected pregnant population.
