Ultrasound imaging can identify the sex of the baby by imaging the groin area. The penis on the male fetus appears as what is commonly called the "turtle" sign, which resembles like a turtle poking its head out of its shell. This image shows a female fetus with the "hamburger" sign created by the labia of the vagina. Katherine Fornell. How to tell the sex of a fetus, baby, on ultrasound.

Fetal imaging is referred to by many names, including pregnancy sonograms, pregnancy ultrasound, endovaginal ultrasound, obstetric ultrasound, OB ultrasound, baby ultrasound, prenatal ultrasound. Fetal heart ultrasound is also called baby echo or prenatal echo.

Image of blood flow in the fetal abdomen. Imaged using Canon's Aplio 500 Advanced Dynamic Flow (ADF) feature, which displays true blood flow. Baby ultrasound showing Doppler Bloodflow

Image of blood flow in the fetal abdomen. It shows the heart (large colored mass to the left) and the main arteries of the body connected to blood flow from the mother via the umbilical cord (right side of image). The fetus is being viewed from the side, with its neck on the left edge of the image, spine along the bottom and abdomen (gray area) in the center of the image. Imaged using Canon's Aplio 500 Advanced Dynamic Flow (ADF) feature, which displays true blood flow.

Fetal ultrasound software includes digital calipers sonographers use to measure between two points. There are a series of standard measurements taken that are used to determine the age of the fetus and estimate the date of birth. Most newer ultrasound systems automate this feature once the measuring points are determined by the sonographer, as seen in this example of on a Philips system. Vivian Fornell. How age is determined on baby ultrasound

Fetal ultrasound software includes digital calipers sonographers use to measure between two points. There are a series of standard measurements taken that are used to determine the age of the fetus and estimate the date of birth. Most newer ultrasound systems automate this feature once the measuring points are determined by the sonographer, as seen in this example of on a Philips system. The software automatically calculated that a 7.03 cm long fetus is 13 weeks old. 

Below is a collection of prenatal ultrasound images from the ITN archive. Use the arrows to click through the image gallary. It includes transvaginal ultrasound images and fetal echocardiogram images. 

Fetal imaging is referred to by many names, including pregnancy sonograms, pregnancy ultrasound, endovaginal ultrasound, obstetric ultrasound, OB ultrasound, baby ultrasound, prenatal ultrasound. Fetal heart ultrasound is also called baby echo or prenatal echo.
