Abstract

Congenital heart disease is the most common abnormality in the human fetus. Fetal echocardiography has been used to detect the majority of cardiac defects, and it is now part of the routine screening method for fetal evaluation. In this article, we present standard ultrasonographic views of the normal fetal heart obtained during the second trimester, first-trimester fetal echocardiography findings, and a modified myocardial performance index.
