Fetal echocardiogram test is like an ultrasound test. This test helps us to see fetal heart structure and fetal heart functioning in detail even before delivery of the child.
Ideal time to undergo fetal echocardiogram is between 18 to 24 weeks of gestation especially before 20 weeks of pregnancy.
This test does not cause any harm to fetus as fetal echo test uses sound waves only (no radiation to the fetus) for seeing fetal heart in detail.
By this fetal echo, we can see abnormalities in fetal heart valves, any hole in heart, fetal heart beat disorders etc and we can plan delivery of fetus accordingly so that we can save the life of newborn in timely fashion.
