Abstract

The development of fetal echocardiography has been immense during the past two decades. Now, not only is the purpose of the examination the correct prenatal diagnosis of severe, combined congenital heart disease, but also an expert echocardiographer can help to evaluate many other perinatal problems. Fetal echocardiography plays an important role in the evaluation of intrauterine growth restriction, diabetic pregnancy and malformations of other organs, and in the diagnosis and follow-up/treatment of fetal anemias and fetal hydrops. In spite of these new applications of fetal echocardiography, training programs for the screening of fetal heart abnormalities are of the utmost importance and could improve perinatal morbidity and mortality for fetuses with congenital heart abnormalities.
