Abstract

Although there is considerable overlap, the average iliac angle for fetuses with Down syndrome is significantly larger than that of normal fetuses. The angle measurement varies widely in any given fetus and is dependent on the level of the image. A prospective study is needed to evaluate the best level of angle measurement for the detection of fetuses with Down syndrome.
