OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to perform high-resolution sonographic examinations to determine the normal anatomic relationship of the conus medullaris (CM) of the spinal cord with the vertebral column during different stages of gestation. METHODS In this prospective study, fetal sonographic evaluations were performed between 13 and 40 weeks' gestation. Transvaginal probes (7.5-8 MHz) or abdominal probes (5-8 MHz) were used, depending on gestational age and position of the fetus… CONTINUE READING
