Obst & Gynaecology Ultrasound

EARLY PREGNANCY SCAN

A pregnancy can be seen from as early as 6 weeks from the first day of your last period (LMP) and not the date of conception. If you have had any bleeding or pain or any other symptoms then this scan will accurately confirm viability.

NT SCAN (11 – 14 weeks)

A nuchal scan or nuchal translucency (NT) scan/procedure is a sonographic prenatal screening scan (ultrasound) to detect cardiovascular abnormalities in a fetus, though altered extracellular matrix composition and limited lymphatic drainage can also be detected

ANOMALY SCAN (20 weeks)

An anomaly scan, also known as a mid-pregnancy scan, takes a close look at your baby and find out normal & abnormal development in each organs. If any abnormality detected then it can be planned accordingly to correct it after delivery.

2nd TRIMESTER PREGNANCY (13-27 weeks)

Second Trimester Symptoms. The span from week 13 to week 27 of pregnancy is called the “honeymoon period” for good reason: This is routine scan done for checking fetal viability & growth, observe fetal movement etc.

3rd TRIMESTER PREGNANCY (28-40 weeks)

The third trimester begins in week 28 of pregnancy and lasts until you give birth, which may be around week 40 of pregnancy. In other words, your third trimester lasts from month 7 through month 9 of pregnancy.

PLACENTA

Low-lying placenta, or placenta praevia, is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta that feeds the growing baby is attached to the lower part of the womb near to or covering the cervix. Low-lying placenta may be picked up during a routine 20-week ultrasound scan appointment.

IUGR (Intrauterine growth restriction)

Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) refers to a condition in which an unborn baby is smaller than it should be because it is not growing at a normal rate inside the womb. Delayed growth puts the baby at risk of certain health problems during pregnancy, delivery, and after birth.

TVS (Transvaginal Ultrasound)

Transvaginal ultrasound is an examination of the female pelvis and urogenital tract (kidneys and bladder). It helps to see if there is any abnormality in your uterus (womb), cervix (the neck of the womb), endometrium (lining of the womb), fallopian tubes, ovaries, bladder and the pelvic cavity.

DOPPLER ULTRASOUND

A Doppler ultrasound test uses reflected sound waves to see how blood flows through a blood vessel. It helps doctors assess the blood flow through major arteries and veins, such as those of the arms, legs, and neck.

3D ULTRASOUND

3D ultrasound is a medical ultrasound technique, often used in obstetric ultrasonography (during pregnancy), providing three-dimensional images of the fetus. … There are several different scanning modes in medical and obstetric ultrasound

4D ULTRASOUND

4D scans show moving 3D images of your baby, with time being the fourth dimension. It’s natural to be really excited by the prospect of your first scan. It gives maternal bonding with the fetus to look exactly the same features & face & other part of the body the way baby will look after delivery.
