Fetal echocardiography is done by a pediatric cardiologist. It is done through the abdomen of mother. It is an advance modality for detecting various congenital heart diseases in pregnancy.

It is generally done between 18-20 weeks of gestation, but it can be done in late gestation also. Ideally, fetal echo should be done in each pregnancy but due to poor availability of this test, it is generally restricted to high risk pregnancies like maternal diabetes, maternal hypertension, abnormal level II ultrasound etc. It helps in diagnosing various congenital heart diseases (anatomic and functional both) in utero. It is also done for assessing fetal abnormal heart beat and rate.

By early diagnosis, we can counsel the family accordingly within a proper time frame. Timing of delivery and survival post-delivery has been remarkably improved in the assessment of these patients.
