Spina Bifida Cystica (Spinal Dysraphism) in 4D Scan

In this ultrasound lecture you will learn how to image and diagnose spina bifida (spinal dysraphism) using 2D and 3D/4D ultrasonography.

Spina bifida can be defined as a midline defect of the vertebrae resulting in exposure of the contents of the neural canal (click here to view normal fetal spine in ultrasound).

In this HD p720 video lecture you will learn (click here to download full lecture):

  1. Definitions and types of spina bifida.
  2. Timing of onset of spina bifida.
  3. Anatomic classification of spina bifida.
  4. Structural classification according to contents of spina bifida.
  5. Spinal dysraphism and amniotic fluid communication.
  6. Incidence and etiology of spina bifida.
