Abstract: Emerging evidence suggests that early embryo implantation is a more active maternal process than hitherto has been appreciated, involving active encapsulation of the implanting blastocyst by maternal decidual cells and coordinated changes in the underlying inner myometrium - known as the junctional zone (JZ). These concepts raise the possibility that early ultrasound markers predictive of adverse pregnancy outcome could be identified. In this review we assess the role of ultrasound in predicting the likelihood of different pregnancy outcomes and highlight potential novel markers that could be tested. Copyright © 2011 ISUOG.
