Fetal cardiac ultrasound

Fetal cardiac ultrasound

Approximately 1% of babies are born with structural defects of the heart. About 500 to 600 children with congenital heart defects are born in Finland every year.

Due to advanced ultrasound technology, the number of heart diagnoses during the fetal stage has increased and will continue to increase in the future. The doctors who perform ultrasound examinations can give the parents advice on how a possible heart defect might affect the child’s life.
