Hanging noose sign

Last revised by Dr Vincent Tatco on 25 Apr 2019

Hanging noose sign in obstetric imaging is a rarely described but classical finding of a true umbilical cord knot. It demonstrates a transverse section of the umbilical cord surrounded by a loop of umbilical cord and changes in the pressure of the knot can be demonstrated with the fetal movement on a 4D scan.
