Ultrasound is used for different reasons at different stages in pregnancy. Ultrasound pictures are formed using sound waves. A machine sends sound waves through the body thereby reflecting back and converting it into an image that is visible on a screen.
Ultrasound scanning is used to check whether the foetus is alive and whether it is alone or one of twins or triplets. It is by measuring the length of the foetus, doctors can accurately determine when the baby will be due. Not only this, some of the major abnormalities can also be detected during the period of pregnancy.
It is the best way to see your baby grow in the womb. First time parents get quite excited seeing their baby on an ultrasound. With the advancement of technology, newer ultrasounds are available to show the parents the picture of their baby in the womb quite clearly infact these days, one can see the scans of their baby in three dimension which is similar in clarity to a photograph.
It can be useful in detecting birth defects when performed in a medical center. Also, the three-dimensional view of baby makes the parents go all the more excited.
