Fetal Echocardiography

Fetal Echocardiography is an ultrasound test performed during pregnancy to evaluate the heart of the unborn baby. Echocardiography assesses the heart’s structure and function. Fetal echocardiography can help detect fetal heart abnormalities before birth. Not all pregnancies can help detect fetal heart abnormalities before birth. Not all pregnancies need to undergo fetal echo. Specific maternal and fetal conditions would indicate the need for this test.
