Obstetric Scans-Fetal Viability, Anomaly and Growth scans
Manipal Hospitals sports top of the line screening equipment manned by a team of brilliant technicians who leave no room for error. The accuracy of their diagnosis is commendable and helps our gynaecologists to map the action plan for treatment.
A few of these obstetric scans include
Anomaly scan: which is a detailed scan at 20-24 weeks of pregnancy. During the scan we examine each part of the fetal body, determine the position of the placenta, assess the amount of amniotic fluid present around it, and measure fetal growth. Special attention is paid to the brain, face, spine, heart, stomach, bowel, kidneys and limbs of the foetus.
Viability scan: This is an ultrasound examination that is usually carried out vaginally at 6-10 weeks of pregnancy. This scan determines the number of embryos present and whether the pregnancy is progressing normally inside the uterus.
The fetal growth ultrasound scan: assesses the baby’s size and the amniotic fluid volume. This type of ultrasound scan is referred to as a fetal growth scan. A fetal scan is recommended if your abdomen measures smaller or larger than expected, you have a previous history of pregnancy complications, and maternal diabetes or high blood pressure.
