Overview


Prenatal Diagnosis is the Official Journal of the International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis.


Aims and Scope


Prenatal Diagnosis welcomes submissions in all aspects of prenatal diagnosis with a particular focus on areas in which molecular biology and genetics interface with prenatal care and therapy, 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 counseling


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.

The Journal may be viewed and all manuscripts should be submitted online at www.prenataldiagnosisjournal.org
