Foetus' legs. Coloured 3-D ultrasound scan of the legs and feet of a foetus. The feet are at top, with the knees at lower centre and the thighs at the bottom. 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.
