A pregnant lady will have to undergo three ultrasound scans during her pregnancy in normal condition.

  1. NT Scan is done between 11 weeks and 13 weeks and 6 days.
  2. An anomaly scan is done between 18 weeks-20 weeks
  3. A growth scan is done between 28 weeks -32 weeks

The typical time taken for a very early pregnancy scan is 15 minutes.

One needs to drink water and fill the bladder when coming to do an NT scan

An abdomen scan is a scanning of the abdomen (kidneys, liver, gallbladder) and urinary tract. Overnight fasting is advised for gall bladder evaluation and the other abdomen scans require 3 hours of fasting before your scan.

Ultrasound is high-frequency sound waves passed into the body to get a clear picture of the insides of our body. To date, there have been no harmful effects associated with ultrasound.

Doppler scan is used to assess the blood flow in the brain, eyes, thyroid, breast, prostate, testicles, etc. Doppler scan is also used to hear your baby’s heartbeat.

Ultrasound during pregnancy is mainly done to determine the due date of the baby, to find the number of babies, growth of the baby, baby’s position, birth defects etc.

The female reproductive organ is positioned in a way that when the bladder is full the ultrasound waves pass through and provide a clear image of the organs inside. Patients are asked to come with a full bladder to get the exact image.

We always prefer our patients to take a prior appointment to do an ultrasound scan or else you may have to wait for a long time. Sometimes, the doctor may not be available and you may not have taken the necessary precautions etc. Hence, it is always a good idea to book in advance before doing an ultrasound.

Because of the baby’s position, at times the doctor will not be able to observe and examine the growth of the baby, hence the doctor will have to wait for the baby to turn around and be in a correct position suitable for scanning which might take a lot of time. It is advised to bring some snacks to eat because scanning can be a tedious and long process at times.
