How accurate is ultrasound at detecting fetal anomalies?

0

The accuracy varies with the experience and care taken by the examiner. In general, at least 50% of birth defects are detected. The most commonly detected abnormalities include those that involve the brain and spine, kidneys, heart, face, and abdomen. Extremity abnormalities can be more difficult to find, and skin “birth marks” are not visible.
