Abstract

Recent ultrasonographic methods applied in the evaluation of fetal thoracic structures and anomalies are presented. Fetal lung volumetric assessment by 3D ultrasonography, analysis of the thoracic wall by 3D-rendered image and 3D skeletal-mode imaging, intrathoracic vessel evaluation by 3D power Doppler ultrasonography, analysis of heart anatomy and abnormalities by 4D spatiotemporal image correlation™, identification of normal and abnormal intrathoracic almost isoechogenic structures by volume contrast imaging and evaluation of the heart and great vessels by 3 and 4D inverse mode will be reviewed.
