With the advent of ultrasound , the elucidation of fetal anatomy has become highly effective and specific. It is non-invasive and a very essential diagnostic modality for ail tiers o/ Health Care Delivery. Diagnostic errors are more likely to be due to inexperience in obtaining and interpreting the images rather than any deficiency of the equipment.
putative- advantages of gestational diagnosis by ultrasound had been those of allowing the chance of effective preterm delivery, elective caesarean section and a higher rate of primary repair. Ho.. _·; r. others like parental counseling, in utero transfer and collaboration of perinatal team, and for determining both the future evaluation need:; and the possibility of intervention, should also be considered. For many parents, the opportunity to be forewarned of the baby «SQ»s problem allows them to adjust emotionally and prepare practically for the postnatal period.
pertinent clinir.al illustrations would be used in this article as evidence to further highlight the realm, importance and necessity of this diagnostic modality.
