PURPOSE To determine whether 3-dimensional (3D) volume scanning is an effective alternative method of measuring nuchal translucency in first-trimester fetuses compared with the standard 2-dimensional (2D) technique, and to report a standardized method of evaluation. METHODS We measured the nuchal translucency of 29 fetuses between 11.4 and 13.9 weeks of age using the standard 2D sonographic technique with the fetus in a sagittal view. We then rescanned the fetus in a coronal orientation and… CONTINUE READING
