The embryonic period starts from the moment of fertilization and lasts untill the 10th week of gestation.


In general, the size of the embryo is very small and its individual anatomical structures change extremely fast.


The implementation of diagnostic ultrasound (sonography) into clinical practice has enabled the safe and non-invasive assessment of the embryo in early gestation.


The clinical use of high-frequency transvaginal ultrasound allows even closer and more detailed examination of the embryonic morphology and development.


Sonoembryology is a branch of sonographic obstetrics dedicated to the systematic evaluation of the anatomy and successive stages of development of the human embryo.


The term sonoembryology was introduced in the 1990s to emphasize the close correlation observed between the reproduced ultrasound images and the actual embryonic development.


The presence of cardiac activity in the embryo can be usually clearly demonstrated after completed 6+0 weeks of gestation.


In the following weeks, the initial development of the central nervous system, the spine, the limbs, the stomach and the physiological midgut herniation (omphalocele) of the embryo eventually become visible.


With the introduction of 3D ultrasound and modern software applications the quality of the ultrasound image has improved enormously.


This has facilitated to great extent for the early recognition of abnormal embryonic development.
