The article focuses on the role of images in radiology, and offers information on an image analysis of an antenatal ultrasound of a female at 35 weeks of gestation. It states that the female had a history of 2 still births, and the present baby too was a male still born, with microcephaly and macroglossia. It mentions that the antenatal ultrasound image shows the appearance of macroglossia, a term defined as a resting tongue that protrudes beyond the teeth or alveolar ridge or mandible.
