OBJECTIVES To investigate the feasibility of incorporating spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC) into a tertiary fetal echocardiography program. METHODS During the study period all pregnant women fitting our inclusion criteria were enrolled consecutively. Four sonographers participated in the study, one of whom had substantial previous experience of STIC volume acquisition and three of whom did not. STIC volumes were acquired within the time slot allocated for the usual examination and all… CONTINUE READING
