Obstetric Ultrasound

Obstetric ultrasound utilizes sound waves to generate images of the baby (embryo or the fetus) inside a pregnant woman and the mother's uterus and the ovaries. It doesn't use Ionizing radiation and has no known adverse effects, and is the most preferred method of monitoring pregnant women and their babies.

The Doppler ultrasound test is a method to measure the flow of blood through the cord umbilical to the fetus, or the placenta may be part of this examination.

The procedure does not require any special preparation. However, since only your abdominal region must be exposed during this test, It is recommended to wear a loose-fitting, two-piece ensemble. Keep jewelry to yourself.

What is Obstetrical Ultrasound Imaging?

Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive medical test that assists doctors in identifying and treating medical conditions. It's safe and non-invasive. It creates images of the insides of the body with sound waves. Ultrasound imaging is also known as sonography. It is a procedure that uses a tiny probe, also known as a transducer, and a gel that is directly placed on the skin's surface.

High-frequency sound waves are transmitted from the investigation and through the gel, and into the body. The probe collects sounds that bounce back.

Ultrasound exams do not use radiation (x-rays). Since ultrasound records images in real-time, they can reveal the structure and movements of organs in the body's internal systems. The images may also show blood flow in blood vessels.

Obstetrical ultrasound images show an embryo or fetus in a women's uterus and the ovaries and uterus of the mother.

A Doppler ultrasound examination could form part of an ultrasound exam.

Doppler ultrasound is a unique ultrasound method that measures the movements of substances within the body. For example, it permits the doctor to examine blood flow through veins and arteries throughout the body.

An obstetrical ultrasound examiner may examine the flow of blood in the umbilical cord or at times evaluate blood flow within the placenta or fetus.

What are the advantages in comparison to? Potential risks?


  • Most ultrasound scans are non-invasive (no needles or injectables).

  • Sometimes, an ultrasound test can be uncomfortable at times. However, it shouldn't be painful.

  • Ultrasound is readily available. It is easy to use and is less costly than other imaging techniques.

  • Ultrasound imaging is very safe and doesn't use radiation.

  • Ultrasound scanning provides an accurate image of the soft tissue, which doesn't appear on x-ray scans.

  • Ultrasound is the most commonly used imaging technique to diagnose and surveillance women who are pregnant and their unborn children.

  • Ultrasound is used to determine a woman's pregnancy for over four decades, and there is no indication of injury to the embryo, patient, or fetus. But, ultrasounds should only be used when medically advised.

  • Ultrasound lets the doctor examine the uterus inside and provides a wealth of information regarding the pregnancy.


  • The standard medical ultrasound is not known to have harmful human health effects.
