Paediatric and foetal echocardiography focus on ultrasound examinations of the heart. Foetal echocardiography specifically involves ultrasound examinations the hearts of unborn children while they are still in the womb. The objective is to detect heart defects and heart malformations before birth. Thanks to this early detection, risks and complications at birth caused by congenital heart defects can be minimised.

Paediatric echocardiography, on the other hand, involves ultrasound examinations of the hearts of children from birth to adolescence. As with foetal echocardiography, the detection of heart defects and diagnosis of paediatric heart disease take centre stage.

Paediatric and foetal echocardiography are usually done by professionals who specialise in paediatric cardiology.
