Prenatal Ultrasound: Brain

  • Mario Lituania
  • Ubaldo Passamonti


Real time ultrasonography (US) is at present the main imaging technique in obstetrics. Indications for US examination are, however, controversial. US examination is performed as a routine method in all pregnancies in most countries, and only in well-defined clinical conditions in other countries.
