Three-dimensional ultrasound is a relatively new imaging modality with several potential advantages over conventional two-dimensional sonography. There is now increasing evidence that three-dimensional ultrasound can in many ways assist in the examination of the fetus. The enthusiasm generated by some groups, however, is not universally shared. It is the aim of this review to summarize the contemporary role of three- dimensional ultrasound in obstetric sonography by giving a critical appraisal of the relevant literature published recently, with emphasis on first and second trimester anatomy and fetal organ and placenta volumetry.
