What is a Prominent Ventricle?

Jane Foley's picture


Dear Ms Ultrasound,
I was very perturbed at my last OB appointment. My doctor told me that the ultrasound technician said there was a prominent ventricle on my baby's 30 week ultrasound. She also said that the radiologist had not yet looked at the ultrasound and that she was still waiting for his interpretation.

What is a prominent ventricle? Is is dangerous to my baby? What could be the side-effects of this condition?

Please let me know. I am so worried.
