  • Figure 1
    Four-chamber view of the heart
     

    The moderator band (asterisk) and the heavily trabeculated wall, hallmarks of the right ventricle (RV) were seen farther away from the chest wall (red line). Note the offset of the valves (dotted lines).

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Fetus;

    Normal disposition of the ventricles and valves. The right ventricle (RV) with its moderator band (asterisk) is seen closer to the chest wall (red line).

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Fetus;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Four-chamber view of the heart
     

    The left atrium (LA), which receives the pulmonary veins, two of which are seen in this image (arrows) is seen connecting through the tricuspid valve (dotted line) with the right ventricle.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Fetus;

    Normal disposition of the cavities with a left atrium (LA) seen connecting through the mitral valve (solid line) with the left ventricle.
