Perinatal Diagnostic Center

The Perinatal Diagnostic Center uses the latest ultrasound technology to evaluate both low- and high-risk obstetrical patients. We offer perinatal consulting with a perinataolgist for inpatients and outpatients. Our Reproductive Genetics Department offers genetic counseling as part of comprehensive prenatal diagnosis.

The Brooklyn Hospital Center specializes in non-invasive fetal testing as well as invasive testing and treatment.

Non-Invasive Fetal Testing

  • Transabdominal & transvaginal ultrasound
  • Fetal growth assessment using multiple parameter computerized assessment
  • Level II ultrasound for major anomaly detection
  • Targeted ultrasound for anatomical and functional assessment of complex cardiac and multisystem defects
  • Multidisciplinary management approach in collaboration with pediatric sub-specialists
  • Utero-placental and fetal placental Doppler for high-risk pregnancies
  • Complete fetal Doppler (umbilical artery, middle cerebral artery, descending aorta, inferior vena cava, cardiac outflows, and ductus venosus) for the assessment of the fetus with growth restriction prior to term
  • Non-stress test along with biophysical profile for fetal well-being assessment of fetuses at risk
  • Computerized ratios of multiple fetal Doppler parameters for the assessment of fetal brain oxygenation (brain sparing assessment)

Invasive Testing and Treatment

Some high-risk pregnancies involve intensive fetal surveillance to provide information about the health of the fetus. Certain conditions may require procedures for diagnostic or treatment purposes as follows:

  • Amniocentesis
  • Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS)
  • Fetal Echocardiogram
  • Percutaneous
  • Umbilical Blood sampling
  • Transfusions
