Fetal echocardiography.

Chaubal NG, Chaubal J - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2009)

Bottom Line: The most important objective during a targeted anomaly scan is to identify those cases that need a dedicated fetal echocardiogram.Associated truncal and chromosomal anomalies need to be identified.This review shows how fetal echocardiography, apart from identifying structural defects in the fetal heart, can be used to look at rhythm abnormalities and other functional aspects of the fetal heart.

ABSTRACT
USG performed with a high-end machine, using a good cine-loop facility is extremely helpful in the diagnosis of fetal cardiac anomalies. In fetal echocardiography, the four-chamber view and the outflow-tract view are used to diagnose cardiac anomalies. The most important objective during a targeted anomaly scan is to identify those cases that need a dedicated fetal echocardiogram. Associated truncal and chromosomal anomalies need to be identified. This review shows how fetal echocardiography, apart from identifying structural defects in the fetal heart, can be used to look at rhythm abnormalities and other functional aspects of the fetal heart.

Figure 0002: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia. The heart (arrow) is pushed to the right within the thorax and the stomach (STM) is seen in the thorax

Mentions: The heart may be completely or partially outside the thorax (ectopia cordis) [Figure 1]. The position of the heart may be altered within the thorax, as occurs in congenital diaphragmatic hernia [Figure 2] or pulmonary hypoplasia.
