Mount Sinai Doctors to Present at Annual Conference for Leading Experts in Medical Ultrasound

Experts available for interview about study findings and other women’s health topics

Newswise — (New York, NY – April 8, 2024) – Medical experts from the Raquel and Jaime Gilinski Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai will present at UltraCon 2024 in Austin, Texas. UltraCon—running until April 10—is an annual conference for leading experts in the field of medical ultrasound who explore advancements in ultrasound technology and practice. Mount Sinai doctors and researchers are available for interview about their study findings; they can also provide commentary on other women’s health topics, breaking news, and studies.

PRESENTATIONS and POSTER SESSIONS

(*All abstracts and presentations are under embargo until the below listed times*)

Monday, April 8, 2024 New Investigator Scientific Session
1:20 -1:30 p.m. EDT (12:20 -12:30 p.m. CDT) Evaluation Of Decreased Fetal Growth Velocity and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes In Dichorionic-Diamniotic Twins
Location: 406
Presenter: Leslie Warren, MD, Resident Physician, Mount Sinai Hospital

  • Recent studies have demonstrated an association between decreased fetal growth velocity and adverse pregnancy outcomes, including fetal death, non-reassuring fetal heart rate at birth, and need for urgent cesarean section, in singleton gestations. This retrospective cohort study aimed to assess the association between decreased fetal growth velocity in dichorionic-diamniotic twin gestations and adverse pregnancy outcomes, including NICU admission, preterm birth prior to 34 weeks, and intrauterine fetal demise or neonatal demise. 

Tuesday, April 9, 2024 Obstetric Ultrasound Scientific Session 2
8:31am – 8:38 a.m. EDT (7:31am – 7:38 a.m. CDT)
Is the proximal to distal cerclage cervical length ratio predictive of preterm birth?
Location: 410 Presenter: Elizabeth Cochrane, MD, Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellow, Mount Sinai Hospital; and Chloe Getrajdman, MD, MSCR, Resident Physician, Mount Sinai Hospital

  • Post cerclage transvaginal cervical length is commonly performed. This retrospective study aimed to assess if the ratio of cervical length proximal to the cerclage compared to the cervical length distal to the cerclage (PD CL ratio) is associated with preterm birth prior to 37 weeks. 

12:30 – 1:00 p.m. EDT (1:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CDT)
Smart Imaging: When AI and Clinical Advances Take the Ultrasound Spotlight in Obstetrics
How will AI change clinical practice in obstetric ultrasound?
Location: Governor’s E – 4th Floor CME 1.5
Presenter: Helen Feltovich, MD, board certified obstetrician-gynecologist, Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, and Professor in the Raquel and Jaime Gilinski Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

  • Artificial intelligence can seem like the proverbial tail wagging the dog, but, regardless of how we feel about it, it is here to stay and offers great benefit to the practice of medicine. This talk will address some advantages and challenges of emerging imaging innovations that are likely to become a part of obstetrical care in the not-too-distant future. 

1:00 – 1:30 p.m. EDT (12:00 – 12:30 p.m. CDT)   Smart Imaging: When AI and Clinical Advances Take the Ultrasound Spotlight in Obstetrics
Using Cutting-edge Technology to Solve the World’s Greatest Mystery: When will I deliver?
Location: Governor’s E – 4th Floor
Presenter: Helen Feltovich, MD, board certified obstetrician-gynecologist, Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, and Professor in the Raquel and Jaime Gilinski Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

  • Morbidity and mortality can result when a baby is born too early or too late. Today’s practitioner can predict the timing of labor and delivery little better than Hippocrates and his midwives could. This talk addresses why that is, and what might be done about it. 

Obstetric Ultrasound Scientific Session 3
6:06– 6:13 p.m. EDT (5:06– 5:13 p.m. CDT)
Mode of delivery in FGR with and without abnormal UA Doppler undergoing trial of labor
Location: 410
Presenter: Henri M. Rosenberg, MD, Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellow, Mount Sinai Hospital • In pregnancies complicated by fetal growth restriction, mode of delivery may be influenced by the presence of umbilical artery Doppler abnormalities. The optimal mode of delivery in the presence of abnormal umbilical artery Doppler is unclear, thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the association between abnormal umbilical artery Doppler and cesarean delivery.
