    Abstract

    We present our experience of HDlive silhouette features of a fetal multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK) at 31 weeks and 1 day of gestation. Two-dimensional sonography revealed a left MCDK larger than the right normal kidney. HDlive silhouette showed multiple cysts of various sizes in the left big kidney on the left side of the spine. HDlive Flow with HDlive silhouette clearly demonstrated spatial relationships between bilateral kidneys and intra-abdominal vasculatures. HDlive silhouette may provide information on assessing the spatial recognition of fetal MCDK.
