|Congenital Heart Defects|
Almost all women in Norway have a routine ultrasound examination in the second trimester, however, the detection rate of heart defect are only around 50%. In this study we use color Doppler at three different levels in the fetal heart; the four chamber view, the outlet of the aorta on on the level of the great arteries.
All heart defects at delivery are recorded and compared with the ultrasound findings.

Pregnant females in the 2nd trimester.
- Sensitivity of Color Doppler Examination to Detect Major Heart Defects During the Second Trimester of Pregnancy [ Time Frame: 2nd trimester ]The number of *fetuses with* heart defects detected by color Doppler in the second trimester was compared to the number of *fetuses with* major heart defects detected at birth.
