Case #3:

June 25-July 9, 1999

Submitted by Peter Twining from Nottingham, UK

Routine 14 weeks scan. One axial images and a longitudinal view are provided.

The image is a cross-section of the fetal abdomen, with the spine at 4:00. Parts of the limbs (normal) are seen at the very top left corner of the image.

Another cross-section very close to the level of the previous one. The fetus is now oriented with is spine at 9:00.

Like in the previous case... "Do not shoot from the hip". I know that you are not getting many images in this case (next case you"ll get almost 2 minutes of video !) but that is all that Peter gave me. It is feasible...

When you have tried to solve the case on your own (no team work here please !) you can find the Answer here.
