Dr. Callen’s general research has been focused on discovering the sonographic signs that allow the sonographer to detect abnormalities and avoid false positive diagnosis of abnormalities in the obstetric, pediatric and adult patient. A specific area of interest has been in fetal dysmorphology and the detection of abnormalities involving the fetal, neural axis, thorax, skeletal system, genitourinary tract, gastrointestinal, and abnormalities of the placenta and umbilical cord.
