Diagnostic ultrasound in the field of obstetrics is used to evaluate fetal anomalies and well-being. These images are used to develop a differential diagnosis that can later be correlated with postnatal outcomes. The following cases are a small sample of recent challenging fetal anomalies at our institution that were detected on prenatal ultrasound.
