Transabdominal sonography is the technique of choice for screening fetal CNS in low-risk pregnancies at the midtrimester scan and should include the fetal head and spine. In the transventricular.. The transventricular plane enables visualization of the posterior horn and atrium of the lateral ventricle and is used for the measurement of the lateral ventricular width. The cavum septi pellucidi is also depicted in this plane. Download : Download full-size image Fig. 1 Effective ultrasound screening for CNS anomalies can be carried out by examination of two important axial planes through the fetal brain; the transventricular and transcerebellar planes. Therefore, familiarity with the normal appearance of the fetal brain in these planes and at different gestational ages is vital for prompt identification of.
One of the most popularly used and clinically applied fetal sonographic parameters is the BPD using the transthalamic plane and/or transventricular plane. In transventricular plane ultrasound image will reveal a midline echogenic falx cerebri with an echolucent box shaped cavum septum pellucidum and right and left lateral ventricles In transventricular plane ultrasound image will reveal a midline echogenic falx cerebri with an echolucent box shaped cavum septum pellucidum and right and left lateral ventricles [ 5 ] The proportion of adequate images from each plane and modality, and the number of inadequate images per plane was compared for each method.

Head circumference (HC) is one of the basic biometric parameters used to assess fetal size. HC together with biparietal diameter (BPD), abdominal circumference (AC), and femur length (FL) are computed to produce an estimate of fetal weight. In the second trimester, this may be extrapolated to an estimate of gestational age and an estimated due date (EDD) The insula and Sylvian fissure depth measurements were performed in the standard axial transventricular plane just above the trans-thalamic plane used for BPD and HC measurements, according to the ISUOG guidelines [20, 22, 24, 32, 33]. In an axial plane slightly above this transventricular plane the POF measurement was performed Ultrasound assessment of normal fetal anatomy. Published on 14/04/2017 by admin. Filed under Pediatrics. Last modified 14/04/2017. Both the HC and BPD measurements can be obtained from the same plane; the transventricular plane or the transthalamic plane can be used for obtaining these measurements.

Read the Outreach blog here: https://bit.ly/3wVtp2b Effectiveness of ultrasound examination of the fetal neural axis In a low risk pregnancy around midgestation, if the transventricular plane and the transcerebellar plane are satisfactorily obtained, the head measurements (head circumference in particular) are within normal limits for gestational age, the atrial width is less than 10.0 mm and. The development of fetal brain is a complex mechanism producing remarkable changes in its sonographic appearance throughout pregnancy. The imaging of fetal brain begins by evaluating the three standard planes .The first plane passes through the cavum septum pellucidum and the atria of the lateral ventricles (transventricular plane), the second through the cavum septum pellucidum and the. Ultrasound has been used for nearly 30 years as the main modality to help diagnose These planes are commonly referred to as the transventricular plane and the transcerebellar plane. A third plane, the so-called transthalamic plane, is frequently added, mostly for the purpose of biometry. (Figure 1

Ultrasound. The transventricular view is the first choice to visualize the normal choroid plexus. The plane lies superior and parallel to the transthalamic biparietal diameter plane. Before 16 weeks' gestation, the choroid plexus fills most of the volume of the lateral ventricles with its typical symmetric butterfly appearance
Some particularities of the structures can be analyzed in the transventricular plane. The CSP should be visualized on ultrasound between 17 and 37 weeks of gestation, and the absence of the CSP during that period may be a sign of an anomaly, including CSP agenesis, lobar holoprosencephaly, agenesis of the corpus callosum, severe hydrocephalus.

Each operator used both ultrasound systems during the study period. The transducer was oriented basing on fetal head position. The head was usually viewed from a slightly posterior angle. This plane is obtained at a slightly lower level than that of transventricular plane and with a slight posterior tilting As a general neurosonographic assessment, the distal lateral ventricle atrial width was obtained in the transventricular plane, and the proximal lateral ventricle was assessed in coronal planes [10,11,12]. Progression of ventriculomegaly was defined as ventricular enlargement greater than 2 mm compared with the initial measurement

. Objectives: To establish the inter- and intra-operator reproducibility of key fetal brain structures throughout gestation using 3D ultrasound. Methods: 3D volumes of the fetal head between 15 and 40 weeks of gestation were acquired prospectively using a standardized protocol as part of the INTERGROWTH-21st Project. For this reproducibility study a random sample of 90 volumes was used Chapter 29 Prenatal Diagnosis of Structural Brain Anomalies Tally Lerman-Sagie, Gustavo Malinger, Liat Ben-Sira Introduction The fetal brain develops during the course of pregnancy, from its primitive three-vesicle stage into a complex structure with an array of sulci and gyri resembling the adult brain by the end of gestation [Nadich et al., 1994] Accurate standard plane (SP) localization is the fundamental step for prenatal ultrasound (US) diagnosis. Typically, dozens of US SPs are collected to determine the clinical diagnosis. 2D US has to perform scanning for each SP, which is time-consuming and operator-dependent. While 3D US containing multiple SPs in one shot has the inherent advantages of less user-dependency and more efficiency.
