Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center is the area leader in fetal cardiology, and we work closely with our perinatal and genetics colleagues to diagnose and address pre-birth heart conditions. Our hospital is also part of an international network for the referral of fetal/neonatal congenital heart block related to lupus.
Our fetal cardiology experts each have more than 20 years of experience in the field and use non-invasive technologies and techniques including echocardiography to diagnose conditions as early as 14 weeks. These conditions include:
- Myocardial dysfunctions
- Other heart conditions
Our ability to diagnose conditions at such an early stage allows us to work with perinatologists at Westchester Medical Center to optimize pregnancy management and address patient heart issues as soon as possible in order to secure the best outcomes. Sometimes, treating the mother can have a crucial impact on the developing baby.
