Research in the field of maternal-fetal medicine brings a new approach, by involving several fields: genetics, informatics, teratology, imaging, obstetric diagnosis, maternal-fetal physiology, endocrinology, and aims to determine the relationships that appear between the maternal medical pathology and the fetal one. In this article, we present an application for monitoring and calculating risk in Trisomy-21 for pregnant women. To calculate the risk, we used 2 methods, one mathematical and one using neural networks to investigate which one offers higher precision. Following the experimental results, due to the use of several variables that increase the risk for Trisomy-21, the conclusion is that the method using neural networks is better, having an accuracy of 95%.
