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 0021: Marked enlargement of the fetal heart is seen due to hypoxia. RV – right ventricle.

Mentions: Enlargement of the fetal heart and poor contractility are often seen in fetal hypoxia, i.e, in placental insufficiency [Figure 21]. Impaired cardiac function often leads to pericardial effusion.
