What is USG Fetal Echo.?

The Ultrasonography (USG) Foetal Echocardiography test is an imaging procedure which is used to create an image of the heart and the internal structures of the fetus inside the womb. It helps detect structural or functional disorders associated with an unborn child’s heart.

This test is typically advised in the second trimester (around 18 to 24 weeks of pregnancy). The USG Fetal Echo is usually done to assess the development of the fetal heart and to detect any birth defects. It also helps analyze the risk of damage caused to the fetal heart if the mother consumes alcohol and smokes. Furthermore, normal results of the test helps the doctor plan further treatment after delivery.

This is a painless ultrasound test which is safe for pregnant women as it does not use any radiation.

Why is USG Fetal Echo. done?

  1. To assess the development and functioning of the foetal heart
  2. To check for congenital malformations (birth defects) if a previous USG indicates one
  3. To assess the risk of development of heart conditions if a sibling has already been diagnosed with a heart disease
  4. To assess the risk of damage to the foetal heart if the mother consumes alcohol, smokes, or takes certain prescription drugs during pregnancy
  5. To assess the risk of development of heart disorders if the mother is affected by diseases like rubella, Type 1 diabetes, etc.
