Caption: Foetus. 2-D and coloured 3-D ultrasound scans of a 17 week old foetus. At this stage the foetus measures approximately 15 centimetres in length. The 3-D scan clearly shows the features of the foetus' face. Ultrasound scanning is a diagnostic technique that sends high-frequency sound waves into the body via a transducer. The returning echoes are recorded and used to build an image of an internal structure. Foetal ultrasound scanning is routine during pregnancy. 3-D scanning uses computer technology to return more detailed images than conventional 2-D scans.
