The main objectives of this presentation are to: 1- Present the importance of the 4 chamber view 2- Discuss recent guidelines 3- Present the full "anatomy of the scene" 4- Explain how to obtain and interpret the 4 chamber view 5- Discuss the sensitivity of the 4 chamber view in the detection of congenital heart defects 6- Discuss the limitations of the 4 chamber view in the detection of congenital heart defects
This presentation will provide an overview of the importance of imaging/assessing fetal systemic and pulmonary veins, the embryology of their development, a systematic approach to imaging, what can go wrong in development and imaging examples of these anomalies.
Review normal 2D and color Doppler anatomy of the three vessel view. Review appearance of typical abnormalities seen in the three vessel/three vessel tracheal view.
