Diagnosis of truncus arteriosus in first trimester of pregnancy using transvaginal four-dimensional color Doppler ultrasound.

Abstract

We present our experience of using transvaginal three/four-dimensional (3D/4D) color Doppler with glass-body rendering mode and spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC) software to construct an image of persistent truncus arteriosus in the first trimester of pregnancy. There have been numerous reports on the antenatal diagnosis of truncus arteriosus using two-dimensional (2D) grayscale echocardiography, color Doppler and multiplanar display in 3D/4D ultrasound1–3; however, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on the antenatal diagnosis of truncus arteriosus using transvaginal
