Reissland, N. (2014) 'What the fetal face can tell us : a discussion of the evidence, implications and potential for further research.', Donald School journal of ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology., 8 (4). pp. 336-343.
This paper reviews findings in fetal development research using two-dimensional and four-dimensional ultrasound imaging and how these techniques have been applied to increase understanding of the fetus. The limitations of differences in language and methods used to code and score images between research groups will also be explored, reaching the conclusion that a reliable coding scheme for fetal facial movements is essential. Furthermore, applications of the new technology studies of bonding between parent and fetus, cross-cultural research on fetal facial development and medical applications are discussed.
