GIFT
Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer - Retrieval of oocytes by laparoscopy; immediately combining oocytes with washed, motile sperm in a catheter; and placement of the gametes into the fimbriated end of the fallopian tube.
GTT
Glucose Tolerance Test
IVF
In Vitro Fertilization - A Procedure during which oocytes are removed from the ovary, mixed with spermatozoa, fertilized, and incubated in a glass petri dish; then up to four viable embryos are placed in the woman's uterus.
Karyotype
The set of chromosomes arranged in a standard order.
L/S Ratio
Lecithin to Sphingomyelin Ratio - Phospholipid components of surfactant; their ration changes during gestation. When the L/S ratio reaches 2:1, the fetal lungs are thought to be mature and the fetus will have a low risk of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) if born at that time.
NST
Non Stress Test - An assessment method by which the reaction (or response) of the fetal heart rate to fetal movement is evaluated.
OGTT
Oral Glucose Tolerance Test
AFP
Alpha-fetoprotein test - A fetal protein produced in the yold sac for the first 6 weeks of gestation and then by the fetal liver.
Amniocentesis
Removal of amniotic fluid by insertion of a needle into the amniotic sac; amniotic fluid is used to assess fetal health or maturity.
BBT
Basal body temperature
BBP
Biophysical Profile - Assessment of five variable in the fetus that help to evaluate fetal risk; breathing movement, body movement, tone, amniotic fluid volume, and fetal heart rate reactivity.
CVS
Chorionic villus sampling
CST
Contraction stress test
Doppler blood flow analysis
Endometrial biopsy
A biopsy of the mucous membrane that lines the inner surface of the uterus.
HSG
Hysterosalpingogram - Testing by instillation of radiopaque substance into the uterine cavity to visulize the uterus & fallopian tubes.
PG
Phosophatidylglycerol - A phospholipid present in fetal surfactant after about 35 weeks gestation
Postcoital exam
??
TET
Tubal embryo transfer - Procedure in which eggs are retrieved and incubated with the man's sperm then transferred back into the women's body at the embryo stage.
