Foetus. Coloured 3-D ultrasound scan of a foetus with crossed arms (cente right). This was taken in the third trimester of pregnancy. 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.
