Ultrasound assessment of the retronasal triangle view at the 11- to 14-week obstetric ultrasound: a survey of current practice
Tertiary Institution: CQUniversity (Brisbane Campus)
Course: Bachelor of Medical Sonography/Graduate Diploma of Medical Sonography - CG91
Ethics approval number: 2021-067
Summary: The aim of this low-risk study is to survey whether sonographers routinely image the retronasal triangle view at the 11-to 14-week obstetric ultrasound to help exclude a cleft palate. This research study will contribute to current knowledge and may help raise awareness of this technique to improve sonographers’ practice during 11-14-week-obstetric ultrasounds.
