Gestational Age at Cervical Length and Fetal Fibronectin Assessment and the Incidence of Spontaneous Preterm Birth in Twins
At MFMA and Carnegie Imaging, we utilize cervical length and fetal fibronectin (fFN) screening in patients at increased risk for preterm birth, such as twin pregnancies. This 2015 publication in the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine is the basis for our twin preterm birth calculator (www.mfmnyc.com/twin) and allows patients and doctors to predict the risk of preterm birth in twins using these simple, low-risk tests.
