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 0006: Two-chambered heart. The image shows a single ventricle (V) and a single atrium (A). Note the pericardial effusion (EFF)

Mentions: Two-chambered heart: This is a defect of septation. The septum that divides the primitive heart into the left and right sides fails to develop. There is a single atrium, a single ventricle, and a single AV valve. This condition is often also associated with a single outflow tract—the truncus. Chromosomal anomalies are known to be associated [Figure 6].
