Are there placental problems besides praevia and separation which can be seen with ultrasound? Should severe blood clots in the placenta be visible?

Ultrasound scanning can identify whether the placenta is covering or very close to the cervix (placenta praevia). It is not so good at picking up blood clot or fresh bleeding from the placenta, however. So placental separation, unless it is actually happening there and then, may be missed by scanning.
