said Dr. Jacques Abramowicz, Frances T. and Lester B. Knight professor, director of Ob/Gyn Ultrasound and Co-Director of the Rush Fetal and Neonatal Medicine Center in Chicago. "But we can only make a difference if moms take the initiative to see their doctors and see them early in their pregnancy."
"Thanks to early detection through prenatal care, medicine can often save at-risk babies who would have been lost a generation ago,"
said Janice Blackwell, vice president, Ultrasound Global Marketing, for Philips Healthcare.
By providing pregnant women "with important information and sometimes an early warning if there could be a bump in the road ahead, ultrasound aids physicians in making better diagnoses, which helps moms make better choices for their babies and themselves,"
