In the last decade objective evaluation of the fetus by a variety of antenatal tests including biochemical, bioelectric, and biophysical means has become a reality. In this chapter the use of diagnostic ultrasound, a biophysical modality of examining the pregnant uterus, is discussed. Ultrasonic instrumentation is first reviewed. Subsequently the application of ultrasound for the detection of altered fetal growth and fetal congenital anomalies is presented.
