State of the Art Fetal Ultrasounds Q & A
What is a fetal ultrasound?
What does a fetal ultrasound procedure involve?
The second option is called a transvaginal ultrasound, in which the gynecologist inserts a transducer into your vagina. This procedure only takes about 15 to 30 minutes and doesn’t cause discomfort.
Why should I receive a fetal ultrasound?
A first-trimester fetal ultrasound can:
- See how your pregnancy is coming along
- Find out if you’re pregnant with more than one fetus
- Estimate the age of the fetus
- Estimate the risk of a chromosomal defect
- Check for congenital disabilities affecting the brain or spinal cord
A second-trimester fetal ultrasound can:
- More accurately estimate the age of the fetus than a first-trimester ultrasound
- View the size and position of the fetus, placenta, and amniotic fluid
- Check the position of the fetus, umbilical cord, and placenta through a blood sampling
- Find major congenital disabilities
A third-trimester fetal ultrasound can:
- Ensure that a pregnancy is progressing normally
- Look at the progressed size and position of the fetus, placenta, and amniotic fluid
