Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ultrasound examination of the foetal cranium can diagnose fetal cranial defects and abnormal skull shape and it's aim is to detect in prenatal age most various abnormalities of the skull, brain and foetal face. The changes of each of these components frequently determine the growth of the other two.The abnormalities of the foetal head frequently appear and can associate serious pathological sceneries of high foetal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.Anomalies of the head have been observed using ultrasound study during the early second trimester. To establish diagnosis and long term prognosis is particularly important and helpful correct detection of the nature of the malformation.
