Since 2005 in France, the national technical committee of prenatal ultra-sound screening (CNTE) has recommended that pregnant women have a routine second trimester ultrasound screening for facial clefts. The view on the coronal reference plane visualizes the continuity of the upper lip, and makes it possible to detect most facial clefts, but not isolated palatal clefts.
