Main Field of Research, Abstract
The main focus of our work is to study the application of ultrasound
technology in obstetrics. With this technology we assess fetal
haemodynamics, study fetal malformation and evaluate the female pelvic
floor morphology after childbirth.
Assessment of fetal haemodynamics is of importance in order to find out action lines for optimal care for fetus and mother.
interest in studying fetal malformations are to observe natural history
of fetuses with dilatation of the urinary tract and assess techniques
to invasively treat lower urinary tract dilatation during first half of
For the sonographic evaluation of the pelvic floor we
developed a new method of threedimensional imaging of the anatomical
structures of the pelvic floor which enables us to exactly localize the
birth related trauma.
Main Fields of Research, Keywords
Fetal haemodynamics, intrauterine growth retardation, fetal
malformation, urinary tract dilatation,childbirth related pelvic floor
Special Techniques and Equipment
All standard ultrasound techniques are applied. Furthermore we have
developed a new approach to assess pelvic floor anatomy in
threedimensional casts sliced out of an ultrasound volume.
Education and Training
We organize interdisciplinary colloquia with the Department of
Medical genetics and take part in regular journal clubs, data clubs and
group meetings. We welcome Medical Students and have frequent
opportunities for MD students.
