  13. 13. Definition of soft ultrasound markers • Soft markers are minor ultrasound abnormalities, considered variants of normal, which do not constitute a • structural defect. • They may be associated with chromosomal or none chromosomal abnormalities. Soft markers include: • Those associated with increased risk of aneuploidy and in some cases none chromosomal problems • Nuchal translucency (NT) • Nasal bone hypoplasia • Nuchal pad edema • Echogenic bowel • Echogenic focus in the heart (golf ball sign) • Choroid plexus cysts • Mild ventriculomegaly Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  14. 14. Those associated with an increased risk of non- chromosomal abnormalities when seen in isolation • Mild renal pyelectasis • Single umbilical artery • Enlarged cisterna Those of undefined association • Clenched fists • Rocker bottom feet • Sandal gap • Strawberry shaped skull • Shortened long bones Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  15. 15. Minor markers: • Wide iliac crest angle >90 degree • Brachycephaly • Frontal lobe shortening • Abnormal short ear length • Flat face • Clinodactaly • Hypo-plasia of middle phalanx of the 5th digit • Sandal gap of great toe • Simian crease • Small cerebellar diameter Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  16. 16. Final remarks: • Detection by ultrasound depend on personal experience • Proper timing of scan Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  17. 17. Disadvantages of soft markers • 1- The exact significance of ultrasound soft markers is still uncertain. • 2- It is operator dependent and therefore may be missed. • 3- The detection of soft ultrasound markers requires training and high- resolution ultrasound equipment. • 4- The counseling, training and expertise required is currently difficult to • achieve. • 5- Some soft markers are transient and the significance is uncertain. • 6- With better equipment, more markers may become more evident which may cause more concern to the prospective parents. • 7- Unless caution is exercised and it is combined with other markers for abnormalities, it may lead to unnecessary interventions.Dr/AHMED ESAWY

  34. 34. Hyperechogenic bowel This is found in about 0.5% of fetuses and is usually of no pathological significance., but. For isolated hyperechogenic bowel, the risk for trisomy 21 may be three times the background Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  36. 36. Association with aneuploidy • There is a high risk for association with trisomy 13, 18 and 21. . Association with structural abnormalities • Echogenic bowel has been associated with an increased risk for: • Cystic fibrosis • Congenital infection (cytomegalovirus [CMV], herpes, parvovirus, rubella, varicella, and toxoplasmosis) • Intra-amniotic bleeding • Congenital malformations of the bowel • Perinatal complications, including intrauterine growth restriction Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  37. 37. Choroid plexus cysts • sonographically discrete fluid filled small cysts (< 3 mm) in the choroid plexus within the lateral cerebral ventricles. It is seen in 1-2% of fetuses scanned at 16 weeks and will almost always disappear by 26 weeks. Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  38. 38. • Isolated CP cysts 0.7 - 3.6 % of normal fetuses no pathological significance • isolated CP cyst with no other abnormality calls for no intervention • 2.3 % risk of chromosomal abnormality • They are more associated with trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) than trisomy 21. • In chromosomally normal babies, associations with structural abnormalities Dr/AHMED ESAWY

  44. 44. Enlarged Cisterna Magna • If the cisterna magna is subjectively increased, a measurement should be taken • An isolated enlarged cisterna magna is not an indication for fetal karyotyping With an enlarged cisterna magna, expert review is recommended for follow-up ultrasounds and possible other imaging modalities (for example, MRI) and investigations Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  46. 46. Mild Ventricolomegaly (10-12 mm) 5% risk of later severe brain abnormality 15% risk of mild problems later The commonest abnormality is trisomy 21, 18, 13 & Triploidy Dr/AHMED ESAWY

  50. 50. Echogenic Cardiac Focus • Located in the chordae tendinae, not attached to ventricular walls • Moves with AV valves • 90% in LV, single or multiple • 95% resolve spontaneously •In high risk group 5 fold increase for Downs Search for other markers – If isolated no action Best visualised in 4 CH view Echogenic foci should be considered as a normal variant Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  51. 51. Echogenic intracardiac focus in the left ventricle of the heart Dr/AHMED ESAWY It is a focus of an echogenic small area in the fetal heart with echogenisity comparable or greater to the surrounding bone. In low risk population, most EICF disappear by term or after a short time after delivery.
  52. 52. Short long bones (femur and humerus) • Definition Short femur and humerus length is defined as a measurement less than the third centile for the gestational age. • Isolated short femur or humerus length is associated with aneuploidy and should be referred for tertiary level evaluation. • Short long bones may be associated with general skeletal malformation or FGR. Ultrasound screening for other • long bones and serial growth measurements should be undertaken Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  53. 53. Short femur If the femur is below the 5th centile and all other measurements are normal, the baby is likely to be normal but rather short. Rarely is this a sign of dwarfism. , short femur is found four times as commonly in trisomy 21 fetuses compared to normal fetuses. However, there is some evidence that isolated short femur may not be more common in trisomic than in normal fetuses Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  54. 54. Short proximal bones Syndactaly is associated with Triploidy Sandal gap with Trisomy 21 Polydactaly with Trisomy 13 Overlapping fingers, Rocker bottom feet and talipes with trisomy 18 Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  55. 55. Simian crease Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  56. 56. Pelviectasis • Renal pelvis 5-10 mm with no calyceal involvement • Unilateral or Bilateral • Scan for other markers If in isolation no further action May indicate obstructive pathology – follow up scans Predictive values range from 1:33 to 1: 340Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  57. 57. • MILD PYELECTASIS Dr/AHMED ESAWY as the risk of Down syndrome remains small Renal pelvis measurements > 10 mm should be considered equivalent to congenital hydronephrosis
  58. 58. • Fetal pyelectasis is associated with congenital hydronephrosis or vesico-ureteric reflux • All fetuses with renal pelvic measurements 5 mm should have a neonatal ultrasound and pediatric follow up. Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  59. 59. 2-vessel cord • The presence of a two-vessel cord can be a marker for aneuploidy. • This is not typically searched for in the first trimester., but this finding can be recognized in a 10 weeks fetus. • One would look for a 2-vessel cord if the fetus has other findings such as a thick nuchal lucency for instance. • Association with structural anomalies :An isolated single umbilical artery has been associated with cardiac, renal abnormalities and fetal growth restriction (FGR). • 0.2 to 1 percent of pregnancies present with a two vessel cord. • Among these, about 1 to 10 percent have an aneuploidy, including trisomy 18, 13, triploidy and monosomy X. Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  60. 60. Color Doppler, and energy Doppler demonstrate a 2 vessel cord in a 10 week fetus. Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  62. 62. | Single umbilical artery Legend:Single umbilical artery Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  63. 63. short fetal ear length • Although short fetal ear length may be a marker for fetal aneuploidy, adequate evaluation has not been undertaken to establish its usefulness as either a screening tool or as part of a panel of markers for tertiary centres. The use of fetal ear length remains related to research protocols Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  64. 64. FLAT EAR Slightly protruding ear Markedly protruding and curved ear Dr/AHMED ESAWY

  75. 75. clinodactyly • 1. Imaging of the outstretched hand to evaluate for fifth finger clinodactyly is not an expectation during the 16- to 20 week ultrasound (III-C). • 2. Fifth finger clinodactyly is associated with trisomy 21 and should be considered for research or tertiary-level evaluation (III-B). Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  76. 76. Increased iliac angle • Increased iliac angle is a possible marker for trisomy 21; • however, measurement techniques do not make it amenable to a screening exam, and it has not been evaluated to be effective in a low-risk population. • This marker may be useful for tertiary centres investigating high-risk patients or as a possible negative predictor Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  77. 77. sandal gap • No further investigations or follow-up are necessary if isolated sandal gap is detected. • It is not part of the screening ultrasound Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  78. 78. Tight amnion • When the amnion is too close to the fetus in which the gestational sac is predominantly occupied by the extra- amniotic coelom, • and the amniotic cavity is tightly wrapped around the fetus. Those fetuses are often at risk of trisomy 16 or triploidy. The amnion is very tightly apposed around this embryo. The embryo later miscarried and was identified as a trisomy 16 Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  79. 79. Yolk sac anomalies Several papers demonstrate that : – An irregular yolk sac. – Too large yolk sacs. are factors that are predictors of pregnancies that will end up as miscarriage in the first trimester Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  80. 80. Major structural anomalies • The presence of certain major anomalies should also prompt a karyotype. • at nine and ten weeks. – One appeared to have an omphalocele (greater than the normal physiological herniation of the guts ) and had trisomy 18. – The other one had a large obstructed bladder and a small omphalocele and indeed had trisomy 13. – Last had alobar holoprosencephaly also within trisomy 18.

  119. 119. Ventricular and atrial septal defects. This is a hole in the wall that separates the two ventricular and atrial chambers. This is also known as an endocardial cushion defect or an AV canal defect. When this is present the risk for Down syndrome is 50%. Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  120. 120. Pericardial Effusion. This is a collection of fluid along the side of the heart. In fetuses with Down syndrome, this is usually located along the right ventricle of the heart. Dr/AHMED ESAWY
  121. 121. Echogenic focus. This is a white dot that appears in the left ventricle, occasionally in the right ventricle, and rarely in both ventricles. There is debate as to whether it increases the risk for Down syndrome when observed in isolation. In a recent study, Dr. DeVore found that an isolaed echognic focus increaes the risk for Down syndrome 1.9 times Dr/AHMED ESAWY
