The simple to complex cystic hygroma does not result in any better appearance of the individual and hence they definitely would look for the better way of diagnosing and treating it. As people today as very well handy of the information on the various diseases, root cause, the best diagnostic ways of identify the intensity of the disease, the best treatment available without any negative impacts the doctors should definitely be answerable to all their queries out of the acquired knowledge which demand the doctors to update themselves with the latest technologies that are available in the medical field.
Right from the manual inspection of the cystic hygroma to the use of the magnetic resonance imaging that has given the great possibility of identifying the symptoms in a deeper sense one has also started using the ultrasonography for the identification of the symptoms that are caused with this disease. While the level of confidence has been noticed to be high in using the MRI for diagnosing the cystic hygroma people still approach the ultrasonography option. In MRI you would not need the imaging modalities if good quality of the MRI studies can be obtained. Sometimes there is chance of confusing with the hemangioma which appears similar to CH but is found in different location. With the MRI there is a chance of identifying this problem also of course which when deducted is an extra pain for the patient to know about one more disease.
While MRI is effective why that one started using the Ultrasonography? The main reason is the prenatal diagnosis which is not possible with MRI. Hence is the reason that prenatal diagnosis is facilitated with a certain type of US called transvaginal. This has got prominence due to the reason that the reports outputted in the prenatal US are striking and are never unmistakable. The images will give a clear idea on the symptoms related to cystic hygroma which the mother should be able to digest. Well the oblique longitudinal ultrasonogram that is obtained in US that is done through the head and thorax of the fetal images have some good identification of the problem like the normal pocket on the amniotic fluid, normal nuchal translucency that is noticed on the sagittal section of the fetus.
You would also notice from the images that are produced by US to be having the amniotic membrane clearly depicted separately. The next type of US that is done on the fetal is the oblique traverse that is done through the fetal skull which gives the posteric cystic hygroma status. Among these two longitudinal is considered as the best as it identifies through the head, thorax and to the skull top which when noticed clearly can be identified by the doctor easily. The cystic mass having the multiple septa is a kind of classical finding that can be found in the images that look like the multiple, thin- walled, asymmetrical cysts that are found to be present in the posterior of the neck part that would really be tough for the fetal to take birth.
In some of the cases the masses can also be associated with the aneuploidy. In case if the impact of the cystic hygroma is high cysts can extend up to lateral part or else even to anterior of neck that will really tough to treat at a later stage. As most of the cases the infants are made slept on their neck it is quite difficult to handle this situation. The mother should rather take a decision of whether to give birth to that baby and struggle it or else stop the worst happening.
