  • Figure 1
    Antenatal sonography of fetal head

    Dilatation of the lateral ventricles with ‘lemon shaped’ appearances.

     
    Area of Interest: Foetal imaging; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Intrauterine diagnosis; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Antenatal sonography of fetal spine

    Short spine with absence of lower spine and pelvic bones. A well defined cystic lesion was seen in abdomen.

     
    Area of Interest: Foetal imaging; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Intrauterine diagnosis; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Antenatal sonography of fetal abdomen

    Absence of anterior thoracoabdominal wall with fetal abdominal contents in extra embryonic coelom (Gastroschisis). A large cystic lesion (C) is also noted in the abdomen.

     
    Area of Interest: Foetal imaging; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Antenatal sonography of fetal thorax (B-mode and Colour Doppler Scans)

    Partial absence of anterior thoracic wall with fetal heart in direct contact with the amniotic fluid (Ectopia Cordis).

     
    Area of Interest: Foetal imaging; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Intrauterine diagnosis; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Antenatal sonography of fetal foot

    Acute angulation at ankle joint showing ‘club foot’ appearance.

     
    Area of Interest: Foetal imaging; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Obstetrics;
     
     
  • Figure 6
    Antenatal sonography of fetal cord

    Short umblical cord with single umblical artery.

     
    Area of Interest: Foetal imaging; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Intrauterine diagnosis; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 7
    Postnatal images of Fetus

    Lemon shaped head, marked gastroschisis. Intra abdominal contents giving bizzare appearance with evidence of ectopia cordis. Lower limb is seen with club foot.

     
    Area of Interest: Foetal imaging; Imaging Technique: Image manipulation / Reconstruction; Procedure: Outcomes analysis; Special Focus: Fetus;
     
     
  • Figure 8
    Antenatal sonography normal fetus

    Fetus with gestational age 21 weeks showing normal head, spine and abdomen.
