Brief Summary:
Sonographic coronal section in the lateral fetal ventricles shows echogenic area in the ventricles borders creating an "halo" around the ventricles. Histologically this area correlates to the Stratified transitional field. In this study we would like to measure this area for the purpose of creating a nomogram.
