Why Would You Need An Ultrasound & Antenatal Imaging?
You may be happily pregnant but do you know that every pregnancy has a small risk of fetal abnormality?
These abnormalities can be associated with chromosomal disorders, the most common ones being Down Syndrome (extra chromosome 21), Patau Syndrome (extra chromosome 13) and Edwards Syndrome (extra chromosome 18).
As a pregnant woman, you owe it to yourself and your unborn child to have screening tests done when they are available.
1. Fetal Viability Scan
When to scan: 6 -10 weeks
What it does: Confirm intra-uterine pregnancy, assess fetal age, exclude abnormalities such as ectopic pregnancy, detect presence of fetal heart activity, and detect presence of multiple pregnancies.
2. Nuchal Scan
When to scan: 11 – 13+6 weeks
What it does:
Measure thickness of the Nuchal fold to assess if the baby has Down’s, Patau or Edward’s Syndrome.
3. Detailed Fetal Anomaly
When to scan: 18 – 23 weeks
What it does:
Assess fetal age, growth, position. Identify fetal structural abnormalities. Evaluate the placenta and amniotic fluid.
4. 3D/4D Scan (fetal well-being scan)
When to scan: 28 – 32 weeks onwards
What it does: Detect any structural abnormalities.
3D scans are realistic, still pictures of your baby and are useful in helping doctors look for abnormalities. 4D scans are 3D images of your baby while the baby is moving.
There’s nothing like the excitement of seeing your baby for the first time. As such, having a 4D ultrasound is an extra special way for you and your husband to bond with your baby and to keep the DVD as a treasured memento.
