Overview

Dr. Fuchs brings to the Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) team an interest and expertise in ultrasound, and 3D-imaging for prenatal diagnosis and treatment in high-risk pregnancies. Her research focus includes first-trimester screening, use of ultrasound to detect fetal structural malformations, and 3D ultrasound used to evaluate fetal growth.

Dr. Fuchs has presented numerous abstracts at national conferences, and has authored several articles and book chapters on such subjects as first-trimester screening, prenatal diagnosis, medical complications in pregnancy, late preterm birth, and management of multiple gestations.
