This assessment is performed between 20 and 24+0 weeks gestational age in singleton pregnancies meeting eligibility critria outlined in the risk assessment form as part of the MFM EMMA clinic referral.
All EMMA referrals are triaged by MFM. When deemed appropriate or when requested by careprovider, an ultrasound-based consult may be provided as part of the ultrasound report in lieu of a separate MFM clinic consult.
When an ultrasound-based EMMA consult is requested:
1. Referral through MFM is required for booking the ultrasound examination
2. Recommendations are outlined in the ultrasound report following the ultrasound examination.
3. It is the responsibility of the referring care provider to review the content of the report with the patient.
4. When abnormal or unexpected findings are found at the time of ultrasound, the referring careprovider is notifified and the patient may be seen in consultation by MFM.
