Case summary: A case of a morbidly adherent placenta diagnosed antenatally using gray-scale, Color Doppler, 3-Dimensional power Doppler ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging is reported. A multidisciplinary team consisting of OB - GYN ultrasonologist, radiologist, maternal fetal medicine specialist, gynecologic oncologist, anesthesiologist, neonatologist, internist, urologic-oncologist, vascular and general surgeons, was used to manage the case. Favorable maternal and fetal outcomes resulted from the use of this team.
Conclusion: Prenatal diagnosis of MAP with gray-scale, Color Doppler, 3-Dimensional power Doppler ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging and the use of standardized imaging descriptors for AIP allowed the development of a multidisciplinary care team approach during delivery which provided a safe outcome for both mother and baby.
