Embryofetopathology

COMPLEMENTARY APPROACH IN PRENATAL DIAGNOSIS

The new IMP Embryofetopathology unit develops the study of abortion products (with gestational age below 11 weeks), placentas and foetal autopsies (with gestational age up to 23 weeks + 6 days).

The anatomopathological evaluation of these cases requires highly specialized training to recognize changes in different products with a view to obtain an accurate diagnosis, ranging from malformative anomalies to changes associated with maternal and placental pathology.

The narrow and integrative multidisciplinary work of professionals with subspecialized training is an asset with a view to the final diagnosis.
