PREGNANCY IMAGING LABORATORY
BAOBAB - Biometry Automation in Obstetrics and Beyond. The World Health Organization recommends one routine ultrasound scan for all pregnant women. However, in sub-Saharan Africa, few women have access to high quality pregnancy ultrasound. The main barriers identified are the lack of affordable, robust ultrasound equipment; and a lack of trained / skilled ultrasound operators.
The CALOPUS project (Computer Assisted low-cost point of care ultrasound) is a UK-India Collaborative comprising a team of Clinicians and Engineers from our department, the Institute of Biomechanical Engineering in Oxford and the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute in Delhi.
Fetal anomalies screening
Clinical and/or cost-effectiveness of first trimester ultrasound screening for fetal anomalies: Is a prospective study an efficient investment?
Screening for fetal anomalies is routinely performed in the second trimester at 18-21 weeks of gestation. Recent data, including a meta-analysis by our group, suggest that screening for fetal anomalies in the first trimester is feasible, and will detect just over half of all prenatally detected anomalies. We have also shown a significant association between the sensitivity of first-trimester ultrasound and the use of an anatomical protocol for screening.
PULSE stands for Perception Ultrasound By Learning Sonographic Experience. It is an ambitious, innovative, interdisciplinary research project exploring the use of Artificial Intelligence-based technologies to reduce the need for highly trained ultrasound operators. It is a joint research project with the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford.
How can we wield advances in medical imaging technology to enhance pregnancy care in the less-developed world? One answer is the TraCer (Transcerebellar Diameter) project. In this project we are developing a simple, low-cost, ultrasound-based gestational age (GA) estimation device.
GLOBAL MATERNAL AND PERINATAL HEALTH
The Oxford Maternal & Perinatal Health Institute (OMPHI) works alongside Nuffield Department of Women's & Reproductive Health to bring together world experts to resolve priority maternal and perinatal health problems on a global scale, such as the INTERGROWTH-21ST, INTERBIO 21ST AND INTERPRACTICE-21ST studies.
The Household Air Pollution Intervention Network (HAPIN) Trial is an international multi-center study aimed at assessing the impact of a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cooking stove and fuel intervention on health. HAPIN Trial centers are located in four countries: Guatemala, India, Peru and Rwanda.
