At a think tank bringing together experts on fetal neuroimaging, obstetric infectious diseases, and public health, we discussed trends in all of these areas for Zika virus. There is a wide variety of imaging findings in affected fetuses, influenced by timing of infection and probably host factors. The resources for diagnosis and interventions also vary by location with the hardest hit areas often having the fewest resources. We identified potential areas for both research and clinical collaboration as the Zika virus epidemic continues to evolve.
