Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The evaluation of fetal midbrain and posterior fossa stuctures with ultrasound after their second trimester fetal anatomic survey is done. The ultrasound evaluation will be done using 2D, 3D and 4D modalities. Fetal intracranial structures(midbrain and posterior fossa structures) will be the point of interest. It will be done only once and will take approximately 20 min.The 3D and 4D VCI-C ultrasound methods are the intervention methods studied in this trial. 3D is a record of the image in three dimensions whereas 4D VCI-C is a real time evaluation of these dimensions.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 290991 0
Comparison of the results of 3D and 4D with 2D in the visualization,length and the thickness of corpus callosum, calculations of brainstem-tentorium angle and brainstem-vermis angle and visualization of primary and secondary cerebellar fissures and visualization and length of cerebellar vermis. The results will be compared with parametric and nonparametric statistical tests. Composite outcome.
Timepoint [1] 290991 0
Assessed at 18 months from baseline
Secondary outcome [1] 305761 0
Comparison of the results of 3D and 4D with 2D for the differences in the results with fetal presentation, gestational age, maternal body mass index and previous number of ceserean sectionsThe results will be compared with parametric and nonparametric statistical tests. Composite outcome.
