Foetal genitalia. Coloured 3-D ultrasound scan of a male foetus. The foetus' penis and scrotum are seen at lower centre, with its legs on either side and extending up above them. 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.
