Greeting

On behalf of the members of CRIFM, I would like to address all mothers, fathers, and those interested in the CRIFM world.

CRIFM was established in Kagawa Prefecture in June 2006 as Japan's first fetal diagnosis facility specializing in fetal medicine. In response to the expectations of many patients throughout Japan, CRIFM moved to Osaka in 2007, and with the opening of the Fetal Brain Center in 2020, CRIFM became a two-tiered structure with the Fetal Diagnostic Center and the Fetal Brain Center. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for your enthusiastic support and strong cooperation.

Dr.Pooh

Fascinated by the wonder of the birth of life
and established CRIFM specializing in fetal diagnosis

Report on Dr. Pooh's research activities

1996 First in Japan to use transvaginal ultrasound to observe the fetal brain, and first in the world to report details of blood flow in the fetal brain using transvaginal ultrasound in the international ultrasound journal.
1998 First in the world to apply 3D ultrasound to the observation of the fetal central nervous system, and reported that the structure of the brain can be determined in greater detail and with greater accuracy.
1998 Chairperson and symposiast of the "Fetal Brain" session at an international conference
2000 Dr. Pooh's ultrasound images appeared on the cover of the White Journal (Ultrasound Obset Gynecol).
