While several fetal anomalies can be diagnosed early in the pregnancy, second-trimester ultrasound can identify or exclude even more conditions. The second slideshow of our ultrasounds collection includes the second-trimester anomalies of the body and limbs that shouldn't be missed.
Ultrasound imaging is a key prenatal tool for revealing structural anomalies that may point to genetic conditions. This slideshow is Part 1 of our collection of ultrasound anomalies and includes first-trimester anomalies and second-trimester anomalies of the head and brain. Part 2 will discuss second-trimester anomalies of the body and limbs.
