Evaluation of Fetal Lung Lesions (3 of 10)


>>WE OFFER FOCUSED,
COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION THAT CAN ALL BE PERFORMED IN ONE DAY. SO THAT WHEN YOU LEAVE
HERE YOU HAVE THE ANSWER. YOU KNOW WHAT
YOU’RE DEALING WITH, AND YOU CAN MOVE ON
WITH THE PREGNANCY. THE THREE TESTS THAT FAMILIES
WILL HAVE WHEN THEY COME HERE IS AN ULTRA-FAST FETAL MRI, WHICH
IS DONE UNDER A RAPID SEQUENCING TECHNIQUE IN WHICH WE DON’T
HAVE TO SEDATE THE MOM OR GIVE A MUSCLE
RELAXANT TO THE FETUS. THE NEXT TEST THAT THEY HAVE IS
A HIGH-RESOLUTION ULTRASOUND WHICH CAN LAST ANYWHERE
FROM AN HOUR AND MORE, WHICH GIVES US VERY, VERY GOOD
ANATOMIC DETAIL AS TO WHAT TYPE OF LUNG LESION
WE’RE DEALING WITH. AND THEN LASTLY IS A FETAL
ECHOCARDIOGRAM, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY AN
ULTRASOUND BUT JUST PERFORMED AT THE FETAL HEART AND PERFORMED
BY A FETAL CARDIOLOGIST.
