Abstract

HDlive Silhouette can demonstrate inner echo-free structures of the fetal body. In our case, this technique clearly showed fetal bilateral dacryocystoceles just below the medial canthal area under the orbits at 28 weeks and 3 days of gestation. We could clearly identify spatial relationships between the mouth, nose, orbits, and dacryocystoceles. These dacryocystoceles became obscure with advancing gestation. HDlive Silhouette may be a useful diagnostic technique for evaluating inner echo-free structures in fetal orbital regions.
