With modern ultrasound technology and fetal cardiac expertise, we can now find many heart defects before a child is born.
Obstetricians can refer their pregnant patients to a pediatric heart doctor for a special ultrasound, called a fetal echocardiogram (echo). An echo uses sound waves to make detailed pictures of the baby’s heart.
We offer echo scans through the Fetal Cardiology Program at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital.
A pediatric cardiologist or specially trained sonographer will do a fetal echo to check your baby’s heart.
Pediatric heart doctors have special training in echo testing to diagnose congenital heart disease (CHD) as early as 18 weeks.
