Pregnancy Ultrasound

Pregnancy ultrasound, also known as obstetric ultrasound or prenatal ultrasound, is a non-invasive imaging technique used to visualize the developing fetus and the reproductive organs of a pregnant woman. It involves the use of high-frequency sound waves that bounce off structures within the body to create real-time images. A pregnancy ultrasound has become an indispensable part of prenatal care and provides valuable insights into the growth and well-being of the baby.

The first pregnancy ultrasound, usually conducted during the second trimester, serves as a milestone in assessing the feasibility of the fetus, determining gestational age, and evaluating the fetal heart rate. Moreover, it aids in predicting the anticipated date of delivery. While most women undergo this scan between 16 and 20 weeks of pregnancy, experts recommend multiple ultrasounds throughout the nine-month journey.

In the second trimester, around the 18th to 20th week, a comprehensive and detailed ultrasound known as the Level II Scan takes place. This scan offers a thorough examination for potential congenital abnormalities, providing expectant parents with essential information. It is crucial to entrust this crucial procedure to our skilled and renowned radiologist, Dr. Bansal, who possesses unparalleled expertise in conducting pregnancy scans with utmost precision and care.
