In brief: Fetal X-ray

Once fetal bones are formed about 12-14 weeks, can see fetal skeleton on x-ray.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: In 2nd/3rd trimester

Yes, a fetal skeleton becomes gradually calcified as the pregnancy advances and x-ray fetograms can be done to assess for possible bone dysplasias after midpregnancy.
