Diagnostic and Therapeutic Fetospic Procedures
Fetoscopy is an endoscopic procedure conducted during pregnancy to allow surgical access to the fetus, the amniotic cavity, the umbilical cord, and the fetal side of the placenta. A smal incision is made in the abdomen, and an endoscope is inserted through the abdominal wall and uterus into the amniotic cavity. The scope is introduced through a small incision on the mother's abdomen and placed into the amniotic sac through the uterus. This allows a visual assessment of any abnormalities of the fetus during pregnancy.

Hand-held Doppler is ultrasound with a transducer used to detect the fetal heart beats.
