Ultrasound is the main tool for the detection of congenital anomalies, allowing the diagnosis of 80% of malformations.
These ultrasounds are performed routinely in weeks 12 to 14, 19 to 22 and 30 to 32. The first two ultrasounds are complementary and their reliability can reach more than 95% if they are associated with hormonal analyzes.
