Diagnosis of preterm birth risk and success of induced labour

Project description

Disruptive technology predicts preterm birth

A birth is considered premature or preterm when delivery takes place before the completion of 37 weeks of pregnancy. Preterm birth is associated with various chronic disabilities and an increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome. The EU-funded Fine Birth project has developed an ultrasound-based technology that monitors mechanical activity in the cervix and can predict the risk of preterm birth. The sensitivity and accuracy of the technology are expected to reduce the large number of annual premature births, their impact on both babies and parents as well as the associated economic burden.
