We're finally over the hump and on the down slope. You're very close to mastering the fetal heart!
In step 3, we departed a bit from looking inside the heart and used our 4-chamber view to help us detect chest masses.
In this short step 4 video, we will learn how to quickly and efficiently assess the cardiac axis. A quick look at the axis can help us increase our sensitivity for detecting even more subtle chest masses as well as subtle cardiac defects.
Thanks for watching,
