The Right Ventricle Outflow View
Because of the horizontal position of the fetal heart, sections along its short axis lie on planes close to a sagittal plane of the fetal body. From a sagittal plane parallel to the fetal spine, these sections are obtained with a slight rotation toward the left side of the fetus, so that the examining plane is from the right hypochondrium to the left shoulder. By maintaining this orientation and by translating the scanning plane leftward on the fetal thorax, a series of sections from the base of the heart to its apex is obtained.
