Foetal echocardiography

Foetal echocardiography is used when the foetus is still in the womb, usually during the second trimester of pregnancy, between 18 and 24 weeks of gestation.

In this ultrasound study, the heart of the foetus is observed and its anatomy and function analysed. It is important to check the cardiovascular system of the foetus is working correctly, and if this is not the case, to diagnose the congenital heart disease as soon as possible. This way, we can plan the treatment ahead of time and make sure we have everything in place for the birth of the child.
