Case description

Fetal ductus venosus flow assessment can be useful in a number of situations in fetal ultrasound:

1. First-trimester screening for aneuploidic anomalies

2. Second and third-trimester scanning when there are concerns regarding:

- intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR)

- fetal cardiac compromise

Of all the precardiac veins, the ductus venosus allows the most accurate interpretation of fetal cardiac function as well as myocardial haemodynamics.
