Many children with critical heart disease are diagnosed before birth or soon after. Thanks to our skilled team at Nemours Children's Hospital and advanced fetal cardiac diagnostic technology, most children who are born with a heart condition — even newborns only hours old — can be evaluated and treated right away.
Called a fetal echocardiogram (or fetal "echo") — this imaging technology provides an in-depth cardiac ultrasound study that allows us to view the structure, function, and rhythm of a baby's heart while still in the womb.
Working with your family obstetrician or maternal-fetal medicine specialist (a doctor who specializes in high-risk pregnancies), our pediatric cardiac team will find out what's going on inside your baby's tiny heart, and most importantly, develop a treatment plan early, to save precious time after your child is born.
