The general aim of research of this thesis was to better understand normal physiological changes of the developing human embryo by using novel imaging techniques, serving as a background for determining the difference between normal and abnormal development. We examined the sonographic appearance of the brain, midgut, genitalia, feet and the curvature in the first trimester of pregnancy by means of both 3D and 3D VR technology.
