Atlas of Fetal Echocardiography

by Manish R Pandya

This book discusses various fetal electrocardiographic techniques those are now widely used for accurate diagnosis and prevention of fetal mortality. Ultrasonography and echocardiography are two common tools for the obstetricians in their day-to-day practice. The use is limited to just biometry and routine use for detecting anomaly. The days have come now with lots of research and development in this particular field. With color Doppler high resolution machine spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC) and continuous wave Doppler, it is very easy to scan fetal heart and to detect anomalies. Advance technologies as well as increased capability of sonographers and sonologists have expanded use of USG as diagnostic tool for evaluation of fetal anatomy and fetal heart. With the exception of the newly described limited scan, a fetal survey has become an integral part of any basic or targeted (comprehensive) USG examination. The fetal heart undergoes complex developmental changes in the first few weeks of gestation and become fully developed by 8 weeks of embryonic life. Congenital heart disease (CHD) in fetus may be the result of abnormal cardiac development during embryonic life. The addition of four-chamber view as a part of routine antenatal screening has helped clinicians a lot to diagnose complex cardiac anomalies.
