Brief Summary:
The aim of the study to evaluate Five-Dimensional Ultrasound in automated assessment of the fetal heart from 20-36 weeks of gestation.

Condition or disease
Fetal Heart Echocardiography by Five Dimensional Ultrasound

Detailed Description:

This is a Prospective pilot study that will be performed at the Fetal Care Unit at Ain Shams University Maternity Hospital.

90 pregnant women will be recruited from the Fetal Care Unit who will fulfill the inclusion criteria. They will be counseled to be included into the study.

All cases will be subjected to:

  1. Full history taking including patient's age, parity, last menstrual period, estimated gestational age by dates, past history of medical disorders, clinical examinations (General and abdominal).
  2. Two-Dimensional Ultrasound and Five-Dimensional Ultrasound will be done for all cases for assessment of fetal Heart.

    • 90 consecutive patients will undergo 2D fetal echocardiography by one observer
    • Then they will undergo blindly Five-Dimensional fetal echocardiography by another observer
    • The data collected will be compared to evaluate the accuracy of Five-Dimensional US in fetal heart assessment.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Satisfactory Fetal Echocardiography Views by Two-Dimensional Ultrasound [ Time Frame: 20 - 36 weeks of gestation ]

    Fetal Echocardiography by Two-Dimensional Ultrasound measurement was done to examine fetal heart in both sagittal Views and transverse views:

    1. Four chamber view
    2. Five chamber view
    3. Left outflow tract
    4. Right outflow tract
    5. 3 vessels and Trachea View
    6. Abdomen/Stomach
    7. Ductal arch
    8. aortic arch
    9. Bicaval view then we count howmuch views of nine views were satisfactory
