ALBINAGORTA OLORTEGUI, Roberto  y  MIRANDA TAPIA, Madeleyner. Assesment of fetal lung maturity by ultrasound: an update. Rev. peru. ginecol. obstet. [online]. 2015, vol.61, n.4, pp.433-438. ISSN 2304-5132.

Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) of the newborn remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in preterm infants. Although the latest scientific evidence questions the utility of fetal lung maturity testing to determine the most suitable moment for delivery in certain obstetrical complications, there is a set of relative indications in which a non-invasive test can find application. The aim ofthis paper is to review studies published on the use of ultrasound as a method to predict neonatal respiratory morbidity, using both Doppler evaluation ofthe pulmonary artery and ultrasound quantitative analysis of fetallung texture.
