Center for Advanced Fetal Diagnostics

The Center for Advanced Fetal Diagnostics (CAFD) is a multidisciplinary service primarily housed at Magee-Womens Hospital. This service provides Comprehensive Care to patients  and their providers following the prenatal diagnosis of fetal anomalies.

Primary components of this service include Prenatal Ultrasound, Genetics (including both Genetic Counseling and Reproductive Geneticist Services), Maternal Fetal Medicine, Neonatology and Pediatric Surgery.  Additionally, CAFD works closely and coordinates care with Pediatric Cardiology, Pediatric Urology, Pediatric Neurology and Radiology Subspecialties.  CAFD also works closely with the Center for Innovative Fetal Intervention in providing comprehensive fetal surgery.

In a true multidisciplinary fashion, weekly multidisciplinary meetings review CAFD patients and provide an opportunity for input from multiple specialties into the care of each patient.  This coordination of care promotes seamless continuity from the prenatal diagnosis and counseling through delivery and postnatal care.
