Our objective was to describe early embryo/fetus anatomy and abnormalities provided by three and four-dimensional (3D/4D) ultrasound using HDlive rendering technology in the first trimester of pregnancy. Normal and pathologic embryonic and fetal volume data set with postprocessing using HDlive rendering mode. Virtual fetoscopic imaging of the normal and pathologic fetus even at early stage of development with increasing maternal-fetal bonding process. HDlive represents a novel and valuable lightening system for 3D/4D ultrasound application that may aid the prenatal interpretation of early congenital malformations although limitations and cautions are still needed for inclusion in obstetric clinical practice.
