In brief: Depends on study

Many forms of congenital heart disease are detected by prenatal ultrasound depending on the type of study preformed.
A low level scan is often used to verify the head size which helps verify dates, position & placental location.Higher resolution studies can examine the heart size, valves &chambers & find many chd's.
