Imaging of the fetus is the most typical ultrasound examine played. whereas so much experiences demonstrate little greater than a fit fetus, the facility to spot anomalies regarding the improvement of the fetal mind and musculoskeletal method is important. incorporated during this factor are articles at the use of ultrasound to diagnose cystic mind lots, neural migration anomalies, and abnormalities of the skull, backbone, thorax, and higher and decrease extremities. the power to observe those difficulties early may have a favorable influence at the process the being pregnant, in the course of supply, and postpartum.

The name ‘‘occulta,’’ which means ‘‘hidden,’’ indicates that the malformation, or opening in the spine, is covered by a layer of skin. This form of spina bifida rarely causes disability or symptoms. Closed neural tube defects make up the second type of spina bifida. These are a diverse group of defects in which the spinal cord is affected by a malformation of fat, bone, or membranes. In some patients there are few or no symptoms; in others the malformation causes incomplete paralysis with urinary and bowel dysfunction.

Specific Advantages of 3D Ultrasound During Fetal Neuroscan 1. The main advantage of 3D US in performing a fetal neuroscan, in the authors’ experience, is the use of the multiplanar orthogonal display mode to navigate through the volume. By doing so, views can be obtained that are impossible (or extremely difficult) to obtain by traditional 2D US. As discussed previously, after achieving the specific plane using this technique, additional display modes can be applied to obtain a diagnostic image with the tomographic mode the most useful during the fetal neurosonogram.
