Abstract

Objective We attempted to assess the ability of Doppler-gated three-dimensional (3D) fetal echocardiography to reconstruct and display specific cardiac structures in fetuses with cardiac anomalies and to determine whether any advantage is offered by 3D sonographic cardiac examination otter conventional fetal echocardiography. Design After 2D fetal echocardiographic examination, 3D cardiac data were collected prospectively in 22 fetuses with various congenital heart defects. Their ages ranged from 19 to 35 weeks' gestation, Basic echocardiographickey views of the venoatrial, atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial connections were derived from volume data sets and selected for 3D reconstruction and analysis. Comparisons were made with 2D echocardiographic imaging of the fetal hearts and the diagnostic image quality of visualized structural details was evaluated. Results The underlying cardiac malformation was well or satisfactorily visualized in 20 fetuses using 2D imaging. Gated 3 D volume data sets enabled diagnostically acceptable visualization of all affected cardiac structures in 7 of 22 fetuses. High- quality 3D reconstruction of the site and spatialorientation of ventricular septal defects teas obtained in 9 of 13 patients. Two-dimensional imaging remained the principal diagnostic modality in all cases with additional structural detail being obtained by 3D imaging in only Two fetuses. Conclusions Three-dimensional imaging of fetal heart disease is feasible for a wide range of lesions, and may provide additional information of clinical value in a small number of cases when compared with 2D imaging.
