Case contributed by Dr Alexandra Stanislavsky


Routine second trimester ultrasound

Routine view of face/lens in this baby inadvertently created a beautiful image resembling a young, dark haired girl.

Case Discussion

Inadvertent image resembling a portrait of a young girl. The play of shadows and the girl's face turned towards an acoustic "window" are reminiscent of the portraiture style of the Dutch Golden Age.
