Ending a pregnancy because of fetal abnormality. Parents may experience a wide range of complex emotions when told of a problem with their pregnancy or that a fetal anomaly (also called foetal anomaly or foetal abnormality) is found.

By combining the results of the five studies (, 31–, 35) and excluding isolated nuchal abnormality (increased NT or cystic hygroma) as an abnormality, the detection rates for the different organ systems can be summarized as in, Table 2.

The effect of time during the study period, gestational age and indication for the examination on the sensitivity and PPV of ultrasound for the detection of fetal limb abnormalities are depicted in Tables 6 and and7.

The diagnosis may be made in the latter part of the first trimester with the use of high-frequency vaginal ultrasound (Fig. 24). Prenatal testing consists of prenatal screening and prenatal diagnosis, which are aspects of prenatal care that focus on detecting problems with the pregnancy as early as possible.
These may be anatomic and physiologic problems with the health of the zygote, embryo, or fetus, either before gestation even starts (as in preimplantation genetic diagnosis) or as early in gestation Purpose: detecting problems with the pregnancy. Obstetric Imaging: Fetal Diagnosis and Care.

Fetal abnormalities are conditions that affect a fetus or embryo and may be fatal or cause disease after birth.
Introduction Many pregnant women, undergoing termination of pregnancy for fetal abnormalities, experience anxiety and distress at the time of the procedure and after the procedure. There has been little research on health professionals and parents views on fetocide. Since the last RCOG guidance() on TOP for fetal abnormality, advances in the detection Author: S Masood, D Economides.Thus, if no abnormality is detected, the couple’s anxiety can be relieved earlier.
If an abnormality is detected earlier and if the couple decides to terminate the pregnancy, simpler, safer methods can be used. Also, early detection of an abnormality may give the couple more time to prepare for the birth of a child with special medical needs.
