Question
Answer: Hi dear! So PI is the pulsatile index of the uterine artery and Doppler is the name of the test . It will let us know about the uteroplacental circulation. And if there is high pi then it indicates development of preeclampsia also pi usually decreases with the fetal crl (crown rump length) and maternal weight dear. Take care I hope this information is helpful to you.
