Prenatal examination is an important measure for the screening and diagnosis of fetal malformations.
To investigate the accuracy of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of fetal central nervous system (CNS) malformations.
One hundred and thirteen pregnant women suspected of having fetal CNS malformations were examined at our hospital from December 2018 to October 2020 using two-dimensional ultrasonography and three-dimensional ultrasonography, respectively.
According to the pathological results, there were 79 cases of CNS malformations and 34 cases of non-CNS malformations among the 113 pregnant women suspected of having fetal CNS malformation. Fifty-one cases of CNS malfor
Three-dimensional ultrasonography has high application value in the diagnosis of fetal CNS malformations. In addition, the image quality is clear, and the diagnostic sensitivity and accuracy are high.
Core Tip: Three-dimensional ultrasonography can show fetal morphology and structure and detect fetal intrauterine conditions, and has good repeatability and high sensitivity. This study selected 113 pregnant women suspected of having fetal central nervous system malformations with the aim to determine the application value of ultrasonography examination.
