Abstract

Aims: Classic literature states that the fetal ureter should not be visible unless dilated. Our main objective was to produce an effective, reproducible method for fetal ureter depiction during an anatomic survey. Our secondary objectives were to record the frequency of visible ureters among normal fetuses and among fetuses with mild pyelectasis and also to determine the diameter of the sonographically demonstrated ureter.
