Aims & Scope

Prenatal Diagnosis communicates the results of original research in prenatal and preimplantation diagnosis in humans and animal models encompassing:

  • all aspects of fetal imaging, including sonography and magnetic resonance imaging
  • prenatal cytogenetics, including molecular studies and array CGH
  • prenatal screening studies
  • fetal cells and cell-free nucleic acids in maternal blood and other fluids
  • preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)
  • prenatal diagnosis of single gene disorders, including metabolic disorders
  • fetal therapy
  • fetal and placental development and pathology
  • development and evaluation of laboratory services for prenatal diagnosis
  • psychosocial, legal, ethical and economic aspects of prenatal diagnosis
  • prenatal genetic counselling

Case reports will be considered but will be published as research letters.

The overriding criteria for publication are scientific merit, originality, and interest to a multidisciplinary audience.
