OBJECTIVE Prenatal diagnosis of skeletal dysplasia is often difficult and based on findings with ultrasound, a technique with 40-60% sensitivity. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a preliminary experience in assessing severe prenatal osseous abnormalities with low-dose fetal CT. The hypothesis was that use of CT may improve the prenatal diagnosis of skeletal dysplasia beyond the available capabilities of ultrasound.
