Abstract

Objective
To validate the use of the first trimester scan not just as a screening tool for chromosomal anomalies, but also as a method to identify the major anatomic anomalies using 10 standardized scans.

Methods
Five years of prospective study analyzing the fetal anatomy of 5924 patients with a singleton pregnancy during the first trimester screening for chromosomopathies. A check list of 10 predetermined scans had been used. The follow up consisted of two more scans in the second and third trimester, according to the local protocol, and a final evaluation of neonatal outcome at birth.

Conclusions
First trimester ultrasound using 10 standardized scans is a valid screening method for chromosomopathies and also an effective method to identify many of the major fetal anato - mical anomalies...
