Multimodality Multisystem Imaging of Pregnancy-Related Changes: Featuring Neurologic, Cardiothoracic, Breast, Gynecologic, and Musculoskeletal Issues

Academic Article


  • Pregnancy and the puerperium are a time of significant physiologic change, and with an average of 4 million births in the United States yearly, radiologists encounter pregnancy-related imaging findings regularly. While many of these findings represent physiologic changes, a significant number represent pathology, making it paramount for radiologists to distinguish between the two. This case-based article reviews imaging findings within the nervous, cardiovascular, pulmonary, breast, gynecologic, musculoskeletal, digestive, hematologic, and integumentary systems throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period.
