Conclusion

The predictive value of uterine artery Doppler for adverse pregnancy outcome in a low-risk population is of limited diagnostic value. Performing uterine artery Doppler studies at 23–26 weeks’ gestation instead of 19–22 weeks’ gestation increases the predictive value for adverse pregnancy outcomes.
