|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.
