During the ultrasound your ultrasound technician will do a through view of the baby's heart. They will measure the baby's heart rate and look for problems with the baby's heart including defects in the ventricles and other heart anomalies. If they suspect a problem with your baby's heart, they will most likely recommend a fetal echocardiogram or fetal ECHO.
