Does cervical length screening improve pregnancy outcomes? Evidence-Based Answer: Midtrimester (18–24 weeks’ gestation) transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) screening to detect asymptomatic cervical shortening <20 mm in women without a prior history of preterm labor, when coupled with intravaginal progesterone, is associated with significant decreases in preterm birth and neonatal morbidity (SOR: A, meta-analysis of good-quality RCTs).
