Citation: Carvalho JS, Allan LD, Chaoui R, Copel JA, DeVore GR, Hecher K, Lee W, Munoz H, Paladini D, Tutschek B, Yagel S. ISUOG practice guidelines (updated): sonographic screening examination of the fetal heart. Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2013; 41: 348–359.
This document constitutes a revised and updated version of the previously published ISUOG guidelines for cardiac screening in midgestation and reflects current knowledge about prenatal detection of congenital heart disease (CHD). The new ISUOG recommendation that outflow tract views as well as the four-chamber view be added to routine screening is evidence-based and parallels recent guidelines and recommendations from other professional bodies.
