Abstract

Placental development is a major cause of a successful pregnancy, and in the presence of placental dysfunction, there is a higher risk of pregnancy complications. Doppler technology can be used for screening and detecting the more common pregnancy-associated diseases like preeclampsia, intrauterine growth retardation, and perinatal loss. In this review, the biophysical markers are discussed in the light of the latest information that appeared in the medical literature. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
