To the Editor The article “Association of Prenatal Ultrasonography and Autism Spectrum Disorder” by Rosman et al reports “significantly greater mean depth of ultrasonographic penetration in the ASD [autism spectrum disorder] group compared with the developmental delay group in the first trimester and compared with the typical development group in the first and second trimesters. Further research is needed to determine whether other variables of ultrasound exposure also have adverse effects on the developing fetus.” These words, which appear in the conclusion of the abstract, do not accurately reflec...

Left-handedness, as a relatively uncommon phenomenon, never fails to fascinate people. There is a common perception that left-handed people are more talented and artistic. To what extent these assumptions are correct, and what your preferred use of right or left hand can tell you about your brain structure? Handedness represents the better performance or preference of using one hand, i.e., the dominant hand. Right-handedness is the most common type observed in 70–95% of the world population, followed by left-handedness, and then a very rare type of mixed handedness and ambidexterity. Although this is an important ph...

Recent studies have suggested that valproic acid (VPA), an anti-epileptic drug with teratogenic activity, is related to autism. In rodents, VPA exposure during pregnancy induces autistic-like effects. Exposure to VPA may alter zin...

Acontroversial study recently published inJAMA Pediatrics has posed possible but largely unfounded links between autism and ultrasound technique and frequency. According to researchers from Boston University School of Medicine, there is a possible correlation between depth of ultrasound penetration during the first and second trimesters and autism. The researchers evaluated sonograms of 420 children, 107 with autism, 104 with developmental delay, and 209 with typical development. They looked at the frequency of ultrasound scans and penetration depth amongst the three groups. They found that mothers of children with au...

BOSTON (CBS) – There has been some concern that prenatal ultrasounds could increase the risk of autism in children but a new study suggests otherwise. Researchers at Boston Medical Center looked at more than 400 kids born at the hospital and found that the mothers of those with autism had no more prenatal ultrasounds and no greater duration of ultrasound exposure than moms of kids without autism. In fact, the kids with autism had on average less ultrasound exposure during the 1st and 2nd trimesters than the other children. The study did raise one question. Does the depth of the ultrasound scan make a difference? The ...
