Prenatal sonographic examination is carried out as a matter of routine during pregnancy to determine gestational age and foetal viability, and to screen for foetal abnormalities. Of the latter cardiac problems are the most common, and all such examinations include a thorough investigation of the foetal heart. This atlas is a guide to the investigation and diagnosis of foetal heart disorders using echocardiography. The book begins with the normal anatomy and function of the foetal heart, then goes on to discuss structural defects and rarer conditions, including tumours and conjoint twins. In each section guidance is given on scanning planes, highlighting important anatomical landmarks and the characteristic features of different conditions.
