||There's hardly anyone around today who is not familiar with the ultrasound image of a baby in the uterus. Usually it's confirmation that the fetus is all right, and the birth can be anticipated with joy. The skilled eye of a diagnostics expert, however, may detect something troubling. "A small baby may be perfectly normal, but in some cases small fetal size may be a sign of significant problems in the pregnancy," said Anne M. Kennedy, M.D., chief of women's imaging and chief of ultrasound at the University of Utah School of Medicine. When problems are detected, the OB Diagnostic Center at University Hospital launches a huge team effort to help the baby, the mother and the family. This tertiary referral center, which sees patients with complex obstetric/gynecologic problems, helps families come to terms with abnormalities in pregnancy and monitors pregnancies considered high-risk because of prior miscarriages, maternal hypertension or other medical conditions.
