 Brief Communication

William F. Rayburn, M.D., M.B.A., Gary A. Smith, Ph.D., and Nathan Blue, M.D.
Preparing for and undertaking an interactive, small-group session about interpreting actual fetal ultrasound reports was a valued adjunct to attending an ultrasound clinic alone.


 Case Reports

Addison Alley, M.D., Charles Macri, M.D., and David Frankfurter, M.D.
Via preimplantation genetic diagnosis and in vitro fertilization, embryos were produced without the disease-causing mutation for long QT syndrome for a mother with the condition.


157
Shawky Z. A. Badawy, M.D., and Shengle Zhang, M.D.
A 25-year-old woman was evaluated for secondary infertility. An intrauterine foreign body was identified by sonogram, and she achieved pregnancy following its removal.
