Ivica Zalud

Biographical Information
Dr. Zalud attended medical school at the University of Zagreb in Croatia and went through his Ob/Gyn residency at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, New York. Prior to joining the department as an Associate Professor, Dr. Zalud completed a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship at Georgetown University School of Medicine. Dr. Zalud provides clinical care to women of Hawaii and the Pacific Islands who have complications with pregnancy or other gynecological conditions. Dr. Zalud also serves as Chief of the Imaging (Ob/Gyn Ultrasound) Division; in addition to fulfilling his obligations as a clinician and an educator, he relentlessly researches technological, theoretical, and diagnostic innovations in this field. Extensive research and clinical application of ultrasound have created a completely new approach in medicine, commonly called "fetus as patient." Early recognition of problems can lead to early medical intervention that in turn can help the mother and her unborn baby. Research in ultrasound is crucial to fulfilling this goal. Ultrasound is also an important diagnostic tool when screening for uterine or ovarian cancer, managing patients with pelvic pain, early recognition of ectopic pregnancy and pre-operative differentiation of pelvic masses. Advances in ultrasound diagnosis are among the most important achievements in obstetrics and gynecology the last half century. Dr. Zalud is member of many national and international professional organizations. He published more than 200 peer reviewed papers, book chapters and scientific conference abstracts. He lectures as invited speaker on 75 national and international conferences in both Americas, Europe and Asia.
