Abstract

Ultrasound is now an established tool in the clinical management of pregnancy. Consequent to its major role in clinical decision-making and its remarkable operator dependence, it is necessary to have guidelines for minimum standards of performance of this modality in each area of obstetric ultrasound. The Society of Fetal Medicine guidelines have been developed for use by all the practitioners performing antenatal ultrasound scans. They are intended to provide the entire medical community with standards for the performance of quality ultrasound examinations. Practitioners are encouraged to go beyond these standards in relevant clinical situations. Each guideline in this document has undergone extensive discussion followed by a consensus. In a rapidly evolving technological and research environment, it is imperative to constantly re-evaluate and update these guidelines. Practitioners are advised to be aware of these updates and incorporate these into their daily practice.
