Second trimester ultrasounds of fetal anomalies in the abdomen, spine, genitourinary, and extremities

July 1, 2017

A collection of ultrasounds for fetal anomalies in abdominal structures, genitourinary structures, spine, and extremities.

Around 18 to 20 weeks, it's possible to evaluate most anatomic structures using detailed ultrasound. For more information on using ultrasound for the detection of fetal anomalies, click here. Here are 14 ultrasounds taken in the second trimester showing anomalies in the abdominal structures, genitourinary structures, spine, and extremities.
