What is Fetal echocardiography?
A fetal echocardiography is a prenatal ultrasound exam that focuses specifically on the unborn heart’s anatomy and physiology. The ultrasound technology used in it is the same as that used in other prenatal screening exams conducted by obstetricians, perinatologists, and radiologists. The fetal echo is often done between 18 and 24 weeks of pregnancy, but it can sometimes be done later. Patients will consult with the doctor at Pediatric Cardiology Care before and after the ultrasound to go over the results and the treatment strategy.
