Ultrasonido de los ventrículos del cerebro en fetos normales

Este ultrasonido para fetos normales se realiza a las 17 semanas de gestación. El desarrollo del cerebro y del sistema nervioso se inicia temprano en el desarrollo fetal. Durante un ultrasonido, el técnico busca, por lo general, la presencia de ventrículos cerebrales. Los ventrículos son espacios en el cerebro que se llenan con líquido. En este ultrasonido inicial, los ventrículos pueden observarse como líneas delgadas que se extienden a través del cráneo y aparecen en la parte superior derecha de la imagen.
