http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonographer

Can Sonography tests detect Full or Partial Deafness in Fetus ?.

If Not, Is it possible in future to design and develop Modern Sophisticated State of the Art ultrasonography Machines which can detect Full or Partial Deafness in a Fetus ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi Prashant,

I am an Ophthalmologist. You can ask me any queries regarding eye problems. I will not be a good source for answers related to deafness.

I suggest to ask this question to an ENT specialist or a Radiologist.
