Past Conferences

The International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis developed out of the meetings of the International Congresses on Early Prenatal Diagnosis.

In 1988, Dr. Aris Antsaklis hosted the Fourth Congress, an expanded, well-attended meeting in Athens. This was followed by other highly successful meetings, such as the ones in Prague (1990, hosted by Milan Macek), in Milan (1992, hosted by Bruno Brambati), and in Jerusalem (1994, hosted by Haim Zakut). All the meetings afterwards are summarized below.
