In brief: Ultrasound, monitor
Abruption is a bleed from the placenta; a disruption of either the mother or baby's blood supply.
Many causes: trauma, high blood pressure, drugs (cocaine), preterm labor, polyhydramnios. Can be very large or very small, so even US can miss a diagnosis. Symptoms: usually preterm contractions, sometimes vaginal bleed. Fetal monitoring is necessary. Wait, watch; abruption can self-heal sometimes.

In brief: Not many
It is a clinical diagnosys.
Unusual abdominal pain, vaginal bleeding, uterine contractions. Sometimes if the abruption is severe and ultrasound can see it. The baby can suffer as well showed by a non reassuring fetal strip. Sono finds abruption only in 30% of cases in average.
