Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Fetal cranial defects and abnormal skull shape are amenable to ultrasound study diagnosis. Correct identification of the nature of the abnormality is extremely important and helpful in establishing diagnosis and longterm prognosis. In addition it might direct the care provider to apply the correct genetic study, chromosome or DNA related, for final diagnosis confirmation. This article discusses normal and abnormal fetal skull anatomy as observed using ultrasound technology.
