The recently developed innovative technique of Doppler color flow mapping permits real time visualization of blood flow patterns superimposed on two dimensional echocardiographic images of the heart. This study demonstrates, for the first time, the usefulness of this technique in characterizing fetal cardiac dynamics.

We describe a case of a near-term fetus whose fetal echocardiogram showed very prominent coronary arteries and severe...
